Dr. Farzaneh Ahmadi is a postdoctoral research fellow in our Bioelectronics and Neuroscience (BENS) group. Farzaneh is a BSc. graduate of Electronics Engineering from University of Tehran (the highest ranked university of Iran). She started her research career as an industrial R&D project manager in Iran where she was nationally acknowledged for successful delivery of multiple pilot R&D projects. In 2007 she returned to academia to work as a Research Associate at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore and started her PhD in Biomedical Engineering developing a Bionic Voice prosthesis for patients who lose their voice box due to larynx cancer.
