Shadi obtained her DPhil degree from the Information Engineering Department of the University of Pisa, Italy under the Marie Curie research fellowship of Horizon 2020 (the AffecTech project). During her doctoral study, she has been a visiting researcher fellow in the Department of Computer Science of the University of Oxford. The focus of her doctoral research was devising signal processing methodologies for quantifying physiological sensor data and adapting machine learning algorithms to assess mental health disorders. Shadi joined the CHI lab as a postdoctoral researcher to develop health care technologies in low and middle-income countries.
Shadi's research interests focuses on biomedical signal processing, machine learning and deep learning solutions in healthcare applications.
Shadi is involved in Vietnam ICU Translational Applications Laboratory (VITAL) team, funded by Wellcome Trust, to develop clinical decision systems in low resource settings using signal processing, machine learning and deep learning methodologies applied to data collected from wearable sensors.
