Towards Smart and Secure Wireless Health


ABSTRACT: Wireless health is the use of Internet, sensing, wireless communications and intelligent techniques in support of healthcare applications. Wireless body area networks (WBANs) with various types of biomedical sensors is one of major infrastructures of connected health and provide an opportunity to address issues in rapidly increasing wireless health applications. However, there are significant challenges in the area, such as improving the performance of WBANs, analytics of large and continuous physiological data collected from biomedical sensors and predictive modeling, and securing data transmission and protecting data privacy, especially in mobile and wireless environments. In this talk, I will introduce two case studies in the related area: (1) developing a wearable biosensor system for the remote detection of life threatening events in infants; (2) a security system to support reliable and secured data transmissions over WBANs.

BIO: Honggang Wang is a full professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UMass Dartmouth. He received the "Scholar of The Year" award (only one per year) in 2016 from UMass Dartmouth. His research interests include Internet of Things (IoT), Wireless Health, Body Area Networks (BAN), Cyber and Multimedia Security, Mobile Multimedia and Cloud, Wireless Networks and Cyber-physical System, and BIG DATA in mHealth. He has published more than 200 papers in his research areas. He was an invited participant by National Academic Engineering (NAE) for 2017 German-American Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, as one of about 50 outstanding young engineers from US companies, universities, and government labs. He serves as the steering committee Co-chair of IEEE conference on Connected Health (CHASE) and TPC co-chair of IEEE CHASE 2016, which is a leading international conference in the field of connected health. He has also been serving as the Editor in Chief (EiC) for IEEE Internet of Things journal since 2020, and Associate Editors for IEEE Transactions on Big Data and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. He was the past Chair (2018-2020) of IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee and is the Chair of IEEE eHealth Committee (2020-2021). He is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (ComSoc, 2019-2020).
