I was fortunate to lead one of the events in European Researchers’ Night 2020 with Aix-Marseille University named “Taboo de la recherche (Research Taboo)”.

The first goal of the game is for a player to make their partners guess the word on the player’s card without using the word itself or five additional words listed on the card. After that, the competing players need to interpret the research subject from the words on the card.

Lastly, I explained my research topic and answered the questions from those enthusiastic young people. It was indeed a wonderful experience for me to share the subject of my research with energetic young people.
Here is the brief description of my research below:
Real-time continuous monitoring of patient vitals, including temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, and movement, enables medical professionals to better analyze and identify health abnormalities in order to avoid inappropriate treatment. Besides, observing vital signs of patients at home from a remote location could be an efficient way to reduce the outbreak of contagious diseases like COVID-19 and the burden on the healthcare systems. The existing radio-frequency based e-health data transmission solutions are sensitive to electromagnetic interference. An alternative solution to this is the transmission of health monitoring data through the use of optical communications. In this research, we consider the use of the invisible light to transmit data from the health monitoring sensors placed on the patient body to an access point placed on the ceiling of a room. However, the simultaneous transmission of data from several patients in a room causes interference with each other’s data, which is called multiple access (MA) interference. Therefore, our main objective of this research is to find a suitable MA solution to transmit data from several patients through the use of invisible lights.
