Sayma is a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Memphis. Her research focuses on health condition assessment from wrist worn inertial sensors and heart rate variability. The rise in heart rate during exercise is considered to be due to the combination of parasympathetic withdrawal and sympathetic activation. Heart rate can be high after exercising or performing any kind of physical activity. Faster heart rate recovery times after an activity indicate one’s fitness. Her work aims to develop a heart rate recovery model after physical activity.
