Mark Albert is an Assistant Professor who holds a dual appointment in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UNT. He is the director of the Biomedical AI lab which focuses on using machine learning to interpret wearable device sensor signals to aid clinicians, with a prior focus in treating mobility disorders. He was formally affiliated for 3 years as a postdoctoral researcher and 6 years as an adjunct research scientist with the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine pursuing similar work in a premier rehabilitation hospital environment. He began in UNT in August 2019 after 6 years at Loyola University Chicago (awarded tenure prior to leaving). His Biomedical AI Lab currently supports 3 Ph.D. students with an additional RA support pending January 2020. He has published numerous papers measuring motor adaptation, detecting falls, recognizing activities, and measuring movement quality for a wide variety of affected populations including individuals with Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, and transfemoral amputations. He will serve as the Co-PI of the proposed project and lead the effort of predictive modeling and GUI (graphic user interface) development.
