Work Experience

ORISE Fellow, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CDRH, Silver Spring July 2017 – September 2017 o Researched state-of-the-art mock circulatory loop (MCL) technologies. o Researched clinical patient data and created customized target input waveforms for MCL by digitizing. o Developed approaches for the standardization and automation of MCLs. o Simulated human cardiovascular system to evaluate the performance of ventricular assistant devices (VADs). o Optimized configurations of the MCLs components; fabricated parts using 3D printing and polymer molding. o Designed experiments and troubleshooting to evaluate the effects of hydraulic resistance, compliance and heart valves on MCL performance.

Research Assistant, Bioengineering Department, U of Maryland, College Park May 2016 – June 2017 o Collaborated with Dr. Arthur T. Johnson and Dr. Jafar Vossoughi on Airflow Perturbation Device (APD) to measure respiratory resistance for early detection and diagnostics purposes. o Computed APD measurements from human subjects in different body positions [n=400]. o Performed statistical evaluation between the effects of posture and gender on respiratory resistance values. o Assisting in evaluating the data and subsequent preparation of a manuscript. Research Assistant, Electrical Engineering Department, U of Maryland, College Park January 2017 – March 2017 o Assisted Dr. Shihab Shamma on investigating of neurophysiological aspects of auditory cortex. o Received training and performed electroencephalogram (EEG) test. o Prepared subjects for EEG measurements [n=20].

Teaching Assistant, Physics Department, U of Maryland, College Park January 2016 – May 2017 o Tutored for Fundamentals of Physics II (PHY122). o Formulated lecture notes, conducted theory lectures and lab experiments. o Assisted more than 40 undergraduate students to prepare for exams and course projects. o Lead two sessions per week of Physics II laboratory, working on related experiments such as oscilloscopes. Medical Device Intern, Nikan hospital, Tehran, Iran February 2015 – May 2015 o Served as undergraduate assistant in the Biomedical Engineering division. o Focused on Medical Equipment Management, including maintenance, quality assurance, and hospital safety. o Analyzed calibrations and device failures, using a customized medical inventory management software. o Prepared detailed monthly reports of equipment maintenance schedule along with cost estimation. o Having hands on experience working with different units and clinics and their data analysis. 2

Biomedical Engineering Course Projects

MRI Distraction Goggles – Biomedical Device Development, U of Maryland, College Park Spring 2017 o Conducted a mock Capstone project on MRI Distraction Goggles to aid pediatric MRI patients. o Utilized virtual reality to navigate the patient through the MRI procedure without the use of sedation. o Suggested FDA premarket approval process such as 510(K) and PMA. Pacemakers – Biomedical Device Development, U of Maryland, Collage Park Spring 2017 o Investigated on history and evaluation of pacemakers. o Performed literature review on leadless, single and dual chamber pacemakers. Biomechanics of swimming– Biomechanics of exercise, U of Maryland, College Park Fall 2016 o Reviewed biomechanics of human body during swimming with focus on breaststroke. o Evaluated damages and possible preventions during swimming.
