In the spotlight: Abolfazl Soltani’s Public PhD defense, Friday, Dec 11

This coming Friday Abolfazl Soltani, one of our Mobilisers from EPFL, Switzerland, will have the public defense of his PhD thesis.  In his PhD work, Abolfazl has focused on accurate walking speed estimation and walking bout detection based on wrist-worn sensors. Although there are many different digital systems that can monitor gait in unsupervised free-living situations such as housekeeping, catching a bus, and shopping, they each have different advantages and disadvantages.   One such system, the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), can measure real-world gait speed accurately, but…
