In modern healthcare, biomedical devices play a pivotal role in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of various medical conditions. From neural interface implants enabling brain mapping to wearable devices tracking vital signs, the scope of biomedical devices is vast and continually expanding. However, this rapid evolution brings new challenges. Many biomedical devices require miniature form factors for applications such as implantable devices or wearable sensors. Integrating complex functionalities into small form factors poses challenges in power management, precision sensing, essential redundancy, data connectivity, device integration, and more. Addressing these challenges requires advanced solutions at the circuit and system levels. My team at UT Austin is dedicated to exploring innovative circuit topologies and system architectures to create cutting-edge biomedical devices.
