Ziad is a PhD student in electrical engineering in Prof. Ada Poon’s group. Ziad graduated from North Carolina State University with BS degrees in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering. He previously worked on utilizing ultrasound for non-invasive neuromodulation and investigated signal prediction schemes for mmWave communication systems. He is interested in designing circuits for both in vitro and in vivo systems to stimulate and record neurons at the cellular level using magnetic fields. His goal is to enable easier and more insightful neuroscience experimentation and to utilize these technologies for the development of therapeutic devices for neurodegenerative disorders.
