Carmelo Velardo

Carmelo VelardoCarmelo Velardo is Senior researcher in Digital Health at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Departmental Lecturer at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford.

Dr. Velardo’s work over the past 8 years (2008-2012 at Eurecom, since 2012 in Oxford) has spanned the topics of signal processing for novel Biometrics and Biomedical applications.

He has participated in over 11 national and international research projects, and has published 28 original research articles. His recent research aims at the use of mobile-Health solutions to support patients suffering from chronic conditions.

He has designed and developed a customisable, scalable client-server platform to allow engineers and clinicians to set up mobile-Health interventions quickly and reliably. The mobile-Health systems created by this platform collect data from patients through a series of health sensors and questionnaires and from electronic health record systems within the NHS network. They also create reports for clinicians and patients and generate fully personalised automatic alerts. To achieve high usability and compliance rates he follows a user-centred design approach relying on information obtained actively and unobtrusively by the users.

His work has been used in several randomised controlled trials, and is now part of GDm-health, one of the first apps to go through the NICE app endorsement process.
