Bio : Todd P. Coleman received B.S. degrees in electrical engineering (summa cum laude), as well as computer engineering (summa cum laude) from the University of Michigan. He received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from MIT in electrical engineering, and did postdoctoral studies at MIT in neuroscience. From 2006-2011, he was an Assistant Professor of ECE and Neuroscience at the University of Illinois. He is currently an Associate Professor in Bioengineering at UCSD, where he directs the Neural Interaction Laboratory and co-Directs the Center for Perinatal Health. His research is highly inter-disciplinary, lying at the intersection of bio-electronics, medicine, and machine learning. He is conducting research in wearable health by wedding his research group's expertise in large-scale analytics with their recent development of \\"epidermal electronics", featured in Science in 2011. Current applications of those synergies include perinatal health, chronic disease management, and cognitive monitoring during aging. Dr. Coleman is a science advisor for the Science & Entertainment Exchange (National Academy of Sciences) and his research has been featured on CNN, BBC, and the New York Times.
