Dr. Chon’s research has been focused on biosignal processing, biomedical instrumentation, wearable sensors and devices including use of smart phones for vital signs and monitoring cardiac arrhythmias, development of hydrophobic vital sign sensors, and identification and modeling of physiological systems. His main research falls into the following areas: (1) Fabrication of novel hydrophobic, reusable electrocardiogram electrodes for underwater vital sign monitoring; (2) Application of our novel ECG electrodes for continuous monitoring and detection of malignant heart arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and heart failure; (3) Development of smartphone application software for vital sign monitoring and detection of atrial fibrillation ; (4) Development of novel motion and noise detection and reconstruction algorithms for wearable devices to minimize data corruption.
