Dr. Benny Lo is a Senior Lecturer of the Hamlyn Centre, and the Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College London. He also serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal on Biomedical and Health Informatics, and the Chair of IEEE EMBS Wearable Biomedical Sensors and Systems Technical Committee . He is one of the pioneers in Body Sensor Networks (BSN) research, and helped building the foundation of the BSN research through the development of the platform technologies, introduction of novel sensors, approaches and theories for different pervasive applications, and organising conferences and tutorials. 

His current research focuses on pervasive sensing, computer vision, machine learning, Body Sensor Networks (BSN), Internet of Things (IoT) and Wearable Robots and their applications in healthcare, sports and wellbeing.

In collaboration with Coursera, Dr Lo has launched a MOOC specialisation on Advanced App Development on Android covering topics on computer graphics and virtual reality app developments.
