ETH Zurich has announced (see announcement 22 May 2014) that at its meeting of 21 and 22 May 2014, the ETH Board appointed three new professors at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology:
Dr. Walter Karlen
Dr Walter Karlen (*1979), currently a post-doctoral student at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, and at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, as Assistant Professor of Mobile Health Systems. Walter Karlen is an internationally recognised researcher who works on individualised methods and devices for use in healthcare. Specifically, he develops biomedical sensors that can be deployed via wearable systems (e.g. mobile phones) away from clinical centres in order to investigate the health of selected population groups. With the appointment of Walter Karlen, the Department of Health Sciences and Technology is strengthening its focus in the area of medical technology, rehabilitation and care.
