Welcome to the Human Centered Monitoring Laboratory (HCML)!

The Human Centered Monitoring Laboratory (HCML) at Michigan Technological University was established by Dr. Ye (Sarah) Sun in August 2014. The HCML is an interdisciplinary resort that integrates engineering innovation with human health and human behaviors. Our primary research focus is on human-centered smart monitoring technologies that integrate advanced technology, human factors, and decision support to improve human-centered healthcare and transportation safety.


TWO Ph.D. openings are available starting from Spring 2017. Please contact Prof. Sun at YES@mtu.edu with a recent resume.

01/2016 Our paper “Capacitive Biopotential Measurement for Electrophysiological Signal Acquisition: A Review” has been accepted by IEEE Sensors Journal. Link
