January 2018: We are happy to welcome our newest member, Mansour Taghadosi, who starts his Ph.D. in ICSL this month.
Mansour has received his BSc and MSc both in Electrical Engineering from Ajman University of Science and Technology, UAE, and the American University of Sharjah, UAE, respectively. His Master’s thesis title is “Miniaturized Low-Cost High-Performance Digital Radar”. Prior to joining ICSL, he has worked for 3 years on SRC projects targetted on wireless powering of low power sensory systems.
October 2017: Our paper “50nW 5kHz-BW Opamp-Less ΔΣ Impedance Analyzer for Brain Neurochemistry Monitoring” is accepted for presentation in IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), San Francisco, Feb 2018.
September 2017: Graduate Research Open Positions (starting Jan. or Sept. 2018).
We have multiple positions available for motivated and talented M.Sc. or Ph.D. students. If you are interested to join our lab, please contact us with your resume and transcript and a brief statement of interest for the project(s) you want to work on.
September 2017: We are happy to welcome our newest members, Alireza Dabbaghian and Tayebeh Yousefi who will start their M.A.Sc. in ICSL this month.
Alireza and Tayebeh have received their BSc degrees in Electrical Engineering from AmirKabir University of Technology, Iran. Prior to joining ICSL, they completed an internship in the IC design
laboratory in AUT where they worked on various ADC/DAC design and implementation techniques and co-authored an IEEE TCAS-II paper.
Our paper “Rail-to-Rail-Input Dual-Radio 64-channel Closed-Loop Neurostimulator” is accepted for publication in IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits.
August 2017: Hossein was recognized as one of Lassonde research leaders for his research work on implantable devices for epilepsy seizure detection.
Yonghang Tian started his internship in ICSL. He joined us from the University of Electronic Science & Technology of China(UESTC).
His research project will focus on the design and implementation of backend digital signal processing of a wireless wearable EEG recording system.
May 2017: Sam Guraya and Mary Choi started their internship in ICSL.
Sam will work on a multi-channel fully flexible wireless wearable EEG recording system with motion artifact removal.
Mary will work on power-spectral analysis and feature extraction of EEG signals of epileptic subjects.
