Regina Leung received her bachelor’s degree in Electrical & Biomedical engineering from McMaster University in 2010. Her research interests include medical device design/development, intelligent assistive technologies, mechatronic systems, haptics, and robotics.

For her undergrad thesis, she designed a wearable hand exoskeleton for the elderly and weak to assist in power grasping for daily tasks. For her master’s thesis, she is working on the design of a haptic training simulator for pediatric spine surgery.

Regina joined IATSL in September of 2011 as an intern. She worked on implementing an ambient monitoring display system for detecting patients and guiding them through cognitive rehab exercises in a smart home or clinical setting. More specifically, she will be working with the Kinect sensor and implementing facial and gesture detection algorithms as well as improving the GUI for the cognitive rehab exercises. She is now currently working on implementing an intelligent prompting system for guiding workers with a cognitive disability through a sewing machine assembly line task.
