Personal profile

Biography

Alpha Agape Gopalai has always been interested in traveling and seeing new places, trying out new cuisines - simply because good food always sparks great conversations and lasting memories. Alpha is also passionate about rehabilitation engineering/systems. Being able to facilitate in the process of giving an individual their mobility back - is the biggest accomplishment for him. The human body was made to be mobile, and so he hopes to be able to help individuals, through his research, regain their mobility and the confidence to ambulate.

Alpha has served in various leadership capacity in external organisation. He is keen in student development initiatives and serves in various positions to facilitate this. In the past, he served as the IEEE Malaysia Section Student Activity Committee Chair between 2018 to 2020. At present, he serves as the staff advisor for IEEE Monash University Student Branch and the Monash Christian Fellowship (in Malaysia).

Research interests

Wearable technologies are revolutionizing the way we monitor our health and plan our routines. These technologies are creating endless potential in various fields of application - it would seem today that we are limited only by our very own imagination on what is possible and what is not. My current research interests focuses on bio-mechanics, rehabilitation systems, and fall prevention techniques and the prospects of incorporating cyberphysical systems for remote monitoring. I am also currently investigating the potential of prevention and early detection of physical injuries using artificial intelligence.
