Temiloluwa Olubanjo

"Tracheal Activity Recognition Based on Acoustic Signals"

Temiloluwa Olubanjo received her bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in December 2010. In 2011, Temi worked as an instrumentation engineer for The Dow Chemical Company in Houston, TX. Since starting her Ph.D. at Georgia Institute of Technology in January 2012, she has been awarded the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship, the UNCF Google Scholarship, as well as the Achievements Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) Fellowship. Temi's research work is focused on bio-signal processing for wearable technology that enable continuous health monitoring for early detection and potential prevention of health abnormalities. In the past academic year, she has published two papers on activity classification based on tracheal acoustics. In August 2014, Temi was awarded 1st place in the EMBS Student Paper Competition for her paper titled "Tracheal Activity Recognition Based on Acoustic Signals." Temi's advisor is Dr. Maysam Ghovanloo.


Hakan Toreyin

"A Low-Power, Time-Division-Multiplexed Vector-Matrix Multiplier for a Vestibular Prosthesis"

Hakan Toreyin received the B.S. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey in 2007 and the M.S. and the Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, in 2008 and 2014, respectively. Supervised by Dr. Pamela Bhatti, his Ph.D. research involved analog signal processing circuit design for a vestibular prosthesis. Currently, he is working as a postdoc at the Georgia Institute of Technology on medical devices and systems design. His research interests include interface circuit design for biomedical devices and low-power analog circuits and systems design.
