Research and Teaching Interests: The intersection between the life sciences and circuits and systems engineering disciplines, including wearable/implantable microelectronic devices and medical imaging devices

Office Hours: By appointment

Education:

  • B.S., Mazandaran University, Electrical Engineering, Electronics
  • M.S., Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUM), Electrical Engineering, Electronics
  • Ph.D., Laval University, Electrical Engineering, Electronics
  • Postdoctoral Research, Georgia Tech, Electrical Engineering, Electronics

I received my Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Universite Laval in Canada. After obtaining my Ph.D., I completed four years of research and teaching at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, as an exchange researcher and postdoctoral research fellow. In August 2018 I joined the UAB Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as an assistant professor.

I seek to develop a microelectronics research laboratory (electronics Biomedical Technology Research Lab, e-BioTech Research Lab) that lies at the intersection between the life sciences and circuits and systems engineering disciplines, including wearable/implantable microelectronic devices and medical imaging devices. The e-BioTech Research Lab is currently focused on developing biomedical implantable, wearable, portable devices using microelectronics, wireless, and ultrasound technologies for a variety of applications. e-BioTech Research Lab’s goal is to offer new biomedical assistive technologies to study the human brain and body and provide new and advanced solutions/instrumentations for diagnosing and treating different diseases.
