Bahareh Elahian, PH.D.



Dr. Bahareh Elahian has a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, two masters degrees in telecommunication and signal processing and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. She also worked as a postdoc research assistant in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. 

During PhD, her research required extensive experience in neurology and brain functionality where she used her signal processing knowledge to process brain electro-chemical signals. Her academic training and research experience to date have provided her with an excellent background in electrical and computer biomedical engineering, including expertise in signal processing, machine learning, artificial Intelligence, and programming/coding in multiple languages.

For her internship, she worked at Johns Hopkins University and Thomas Jefferson Hospital following her PhD thesis on seizure localization and detection in human brain. She worked with different sets related to brain data streaming systems. During her postdoc, while working with animal models in the study of neuro-modulation and the effect of the ultrasound on seizure initiation and propagation, she learned how to perform micro-surgery on brain and record data utilizing micro-sensors measuring electro-chemical brain potentials.

Dr. Elahian also enrolled in a Master of Patent Law program at the University of Minnesota where she learned how to analyze the patents.
