Academic Hoda

Introduction

I'm a final year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. My doctoral research advisors are Prof. Peter K. Sorger and Prof. John N. Tsitsiklis. My thesis focuses on the application of probabilistic methods to parameter estimation and model discrimination of complex biochemical networks.

I completed my Masters' Thesis under the supervision of Prof. Rosalind W. Picard at the MIT Media Lab 's Affective Computing group. My thesis focused on the development and design of a novel, low- cost, low-power physiological sensor module. The wrist-worn module consisted of a heart rate, skin conductance, temperature, and motion sensor. The data collected by the set of sensors could be wirelessly transmitted to a laptop or a cellphone in real time for around-the-clock monitoring.
