Christos Efstratiou is a Lecturer at the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, at theUniversity of Kent. He has worked in the past as a researcher at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, and the Computing Department, Lancaster University. In his work he has been exploring the use of mobile and wearable technologies that can be used to “sense” human activities. In his work he has been exploring how the sensing capabilities of smartphones can allow us to detect the daily activities of people and enable us to get a better understanding of human behaviour. In his current work, he is interested in the use of wearable sensing devices, such as “smart watches”, and their potential to help people suffering from long term health conditions receive better care through real-time monitoring of their health. His research considers both, the technical challenges of developing technologies that can accurately capture information about human activities, as well as the privacy and security implications of the use of such technologies.

In his recent project “Epilepsy Networks” he is exploring the use of wrist-worn sensing devices that can be used to detect epileptic seizures, and linking such information with health practitioners in real-time. The project is funded by Innovate UK, and is in collaboration with Poole Hospital in Dorset, ShearwaterSystems, and Graphnet Ltd.
