Rozhan is a Kurdish word for Sun:)
I was born in Urmia, Iran. I got my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology majoring in Electronics with a minor in Economics.
Currently, I'm pursuing my Ph.D. as an EECS student at UC. Berkeley. My main research interests are low-power biomedical sensor design, power harvesting, Analog/mixed-signal circuits and Machine Learning for Biomedical Applications. Currently, I'm working on designing an implantable imager sensor for cancer therapy. Apart from hardware design, I've also worked on using machine learning algorithms to improve the quality of the microscopic images taken with our customized imager, deblurring and 3D reconstruction. I'm honored to be a part of BWRC (Berkeley Wireless Research Center), BSAC (Berkeley Sensors and Actuators Center), and Swarm Lab at UC. Berkeley.

PhD Student in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Aug 2018-present

I'm co-advised by Prof. Mekhail Anwar and Prof. Vladimir Stojanovic from UCSF and UC. Berkeley, respectively. My main focus of research is designing wireless and low-power integrated circuits for cancer therapy. The project is a comprehensive combination of Power Harvesting, Analog-to-Digital Conversion and Fluorescence Imaging. In addition to the hardware design, I've been working on using Machine Learning to enhance the quality of cell images using both actual in-vivo and synthetic data. I hope this project can help us gain more intuition and understanding about the entangled nature of cancer cells which can help clinicians extensively in cancer therapy.

Sharif University of Technology

B.Sc. Degree in Electrical Engineering minored with Economics Sep 2013-June2018

I received my bachelor's degree from Sharif University of Technology where I did research in various areas from biomedical sensors to RF circuit design. My journey towards biomedical circuits started with the design of a low-power wearable ECG signal monitoring device with a BLE RF link which was a very pleasant experience of both circuit design and team-work. I also tried to broaden my view in the vast field of electronics by doing research on NF analysis of LNA for RF receivers, which lead to my first paper accepted at TSP2018.
