Title of project

Optical Guidance Neurosurgery Using a Wavelength-Swept System and Spectral Analysis by Artificial Intelligence

Biography

Elahe grew in Iran and she has done her BSc degrees in electrical engineering in Amirkabir University of Technology (2011-2015). She obtained her MSc in Biomedical Engineering in University of Tehran (2016-2019). She worked on the structural connections of neurons in the human brain and she got familiar with different signal acquisition methods of the brain and the artificial intelligence techniques to analyze the signal. She became interested in the structural properties of the brain and she decided to continue her education for the optical imaging of the brain and analysis the information that the optical signal convey. As a PhD student in DCCLab, she aimes to use the wavelength-swept system to obtain a Raman spectrum of the brain tissue to be used during the surgeries.
