Ramin Madarshahian wins SPARC award

Ramin Madarshahian was selected as one of the 2014 SPARC fellows for his work in human fall recognition using logictic regresion.  The intellectual merit of his proposal is in the development of fundamental knowledge to identify and classify human falls using structural vibrations.  The project has the potential to have significant broader impacts including enabling independent living for elderly and people with dementia such as Alzheimer’s patients.
