Navin Cooray

Postdoctoral Researcher in digital wearables

I am a postdoctoral researcher taking over from Dr Christine Lo. I recently completed my PhD at the University of Oxford in biomedical engineering where I developed automated diagnostic tools to identify REM sleep behaviour disorder through wearable sleep devices and machine learning techniques. I am now working with Professor Michele Hu on a project to compare the efficacy of smartphone motor test and free-living gait monitoring to detect clinically relevant changes. This work has the potential to revolutionise the approach to measure Parkinson’s disease symptoms and the response to clinical trials through frequent and objective data through home-based smartphones.
