Louis A. Gomez

Hi there! I'm an undergraduate engineering student interested in the applications of Machine Learning to Healthcare

My name is Louis Adedapo Gomez and I am senior at Wichita State University originally from Lagos, Nigeria. I study electrical engineering with a minor in computer science.  In my downtime, I enjoy listening to science and economics-oriented podcasts and expanding my worldview through documentaries. 

I am passionate about leadership as I serve the president of my schools' National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and IEEE Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE- HKN) chapters. NSBE has provided me with the opportunity to create an engaging community of black engineers who passionate about serving their communities and inspiring the future generation of engineers. IEEE Eta Kappa Nu has given me the platform to create unique academic events geared towards increasing engagement between students in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department and faculty and staff.

My current research interest lies in the applications of signals recorded from the body such as EEG waves and Electrodermal Activity signals in the development of health-centered use cases ranging on a spectrum from computer-aided diagnosis to understanding human behavior or emotion.
