Jeremy Young Ph.D.

College of Natural and Computational Sciences - Department of Computer Science and Engineering

VISITING ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF ENGINEERING

 

Education:

  • Ph.D., Electrical Engineering, University of Hawaii at Manoa
  • B.S., Biomedical Engineering, Illinois Institute of Technology

 

Courses Taught:

  • ENGB2000 Biomechanics
  • ENGB3001 Thermodynamics of Living Systems
  • ENGB3004 Biomedical Instrumentation and Device Fabrication
  • ENGB3005/ENGE3004 [now ENGR3500] Engineering Design Project I
  • ENGE4009 Image Processing

 

Research/Professional Interests:

I am interested in the application of statistical signal processing to biologically related problems and the reverse, looking at biological systems to improve upon existing methods or create new ones. My expertise is in algorithm development, but do enjoy working with hardware when I get the chance. In the past I have worked on the passive acoustic monitoring for marine mammals, ultrasound targeted microbubble destruction for gene therapy, and non-contact respiratory monitoring. At HPU I have been working with 3D printing.

I am also a Data Engineer at the Maui High Performance Computing Center, a DoD super-computing resource center. So I additionally have interests in the collection and management of data especially as it pertains to ML/AI and parallel computing.

My long term goal is to increase the opportunities for STEM related careers in Hawaii. Currently, I am trying to achieve this by promoting STEM disciplines through education and have participated in a number of outreach programs for K-12 students in the islands.

 

Personal Interests/Biography:

I was born and raised in Honolulu; though I have lived away for a time, this island is my home. I love to ride my NJS track bike, play kendama, cook and eat food, and getting lost in Japan.
