• Professor Ou Bai received his PhD in 2000 from Saga University in Japan and his BA from Tsinghua University in 1991 from Beijing, China. Professor Bai was recently awarded $901,925 from the National Science Foundation for his project titled “CPS: Synergy: Sensor Network-Based Lower-Limb Prosthetic Optimization and Control.” This project will design wearable body area sensor systems for real-time measurement of amputee’s energy expenditure and will develop computer algorithms for automatic lower-limb prosthesis optimization.

    His current research interests include cyber-physical systems (CPS) research on robotic/prosthetic optimization. He is also interested in smart and connected health research on in-home exercise/rehabilitation, monitoring cybersecurity and privacy in cyber-physical systems sensors, real-time sensor signal processing and recognition multivariate signal processing, detection and classification.
