Photo of USRP student Jonathan Mak in the lab, working with a laptop computer hooked up to his monitoring device.Jonathan is creating a portable medical device to study those who suffer from post-operative atrial fibrillation, an illness that is characterized by abnormal heart beats and can lead to stroke. Jonathan hopes to utilize the data from the device to properly learn how to treat this illness as well as to find out more about this uninvestigated area of medicine.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 24, 2017:
