Biography

Dr. Shehroz Khan obtained his PhD degree from the University of Waterloo, Canada in 2016. For the PhD, his main research focus was the development of algorithms for fall detection using wearable devices with a focus on developing classifiers that can handle the scarcity of data for real falls. He obtained his Master’s degree in 2010 from the National University of Ireland Galway, Ireland, where he developed algorithms based on one-class classification for the identification of chemical spectra. His undergraduate degree was from Aligarh Muslim University, India in which he used neural networks for the diagnosis of cardio-vascular responses.

At Toronto Rehab Institute, Dr. Khan is extending his research work on fall detection by employing deep learning methods and extreme value theory. He is also working on developing machine learning strategies for the early-discovery of symptoms for Alzheimer’s disease by using wearable devices.
