Dr Kylie De Jager profile picture
  • Honorary Senior Research Fellow
  • Department of Ortho and MSK Science
  • Div of Surgery & Interventional Sci
  • Faculty of Medical Sciences

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Aspire CREATe group, within the Division of Surgery. I completed my B.Eng degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering (cum laude), at the Rand Afrikaans Univeristy (RAU) in South Africa. Thereafter I obtained a M.Eng degree in Power Electronics (cum laude) from the University of Johannesburg (UJ). I received my PhD from University College London (UCL) in Medical Physics and Bioengineering. 

Between postgraduate degrees I spent a year as a Visiting Scholar at Virginia Tech in the United States. After completing my PhD I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Division of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Cape Town (UCT), before returning to UCL in September 2017.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My main research interests focus on the design and development of medical electronics which has included the following:
(i) Implantable electronics for recording muscle activity (EMG signals).
(ii) Electronic design of neuromuscular stimulators.
(iii) Electronic design of biosignal amplifiers for capturing EMG in the presence of stimulation artefact.
(iv) Blind Source Separation signal processing techniques applied to surface EMG to non-invasively record deep muscle activity.

I have also used collaboration network analysis to investigate medical device development paradigms to better understand the context in which healthcare needs are addressed.

Teaching Summary

I have taught part of a master’s level course on  “Electronic Devices (and Implant Technologies)”(SURGRR06/SURG0107; 8 hours; 2018 & 2019). 

I have also co-supervised 1 PhD student, 4 MSc students and 3 undergraduate interns.
