About me:

I am Kourosh Vali, and I’m a Ph.D. student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department under the supervision of Prof. Soheil Ghiasi. I received my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tabriz in 2018.

I joined the Laboratory for Embedded and Programmable Systems at UC Davis the following year, and my research is on embedded software systems for health applications. I’m currently leading the Transabdominal Fetal pulse-Oximetry system (TFO) project, where I mainly focus on system design, signal processing, and analysis of the acquired data.


Research Interests:

  • Data Analysis in Health Applications
  • Data Science
  • Machine Learning
  • Embedded Systems
  • Signal Processing
  • Hardware and Software Co-Design
  • System Design and Optimization
  • Internet of Things
  • Computer Vision
