Dr. Aydin Farajidavar, is the director of IMS Lab and an Assistant Professor at New York Institute of Technology (NYIT).
Before joining NYIT, he was a Post-doctroal Fellow in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He received the Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Joint program of the University of Texas at Arlington and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas in 2011. In the course of his PhD studies he was recognized with the Alfred and Janet Potvin Outstanding Bioengineering Student Award. His research experience and interest include a broad range from modeling of biological systems, to development of wireless platforms to acquire and process biological signals.
His Ph.D. research was focused on development of wireless wearable systems for acquiring and processing neurological signals with the central goal of detecting and controlling pain in a closed-loop feedback in real-time. At Georgia Tech (GT-Bionics Lab), he was leading the development of new applications for multiple wearable wireless platforms ranging from developing an unobtrusive system for real-time tracking the tongue movement to conceptualizing a drug compliance system for elderly population.
Dr. Farajidavar has authored several journal and conference papers and is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and International Neural Network Society (INNS). He serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Biological Research (Hong Kong) and on the Technical Program Committee (TPC) for MTT-10 of IEEE MTT-S, and Microwave Theory and Techniques Society.
