Headshot of Parya

I graduated with a B.Sc in Electrical Engineering – Control Systems in 2016. I am currently a master student in Systems Design Engineering at university of Waterloo. Under supervision of Dr. Jennifer Boger and Professor John McPhee the emphasis of my research is on rehabilitation, using the stroke rehabilitation robot for reducing pusher behavior in people with pusher syndrome. We are also interested to see how using machine learning along with head-mounted virtual reality might be used to enhance rehabilitation outcomes.

No one can ignore the vital role of science and technology in improvement of human life. By using my knowledge to build advances devices, I am here to be part of this improvement process to facilitate people’s lives. In my leisure time I like to go mountain climbing, caving, swimming.
