Dr. Saman Sargolzaei received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Florida International University in 2015. His doctoral dissertation, in collaboration with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and Baptist Hospital, was focused on the role of brain networks in the diagnosis and evaluation of neurological disorders (Epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease). He received his second M.Sc. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Miami. His thesis was conducted as part of an NIH supported study on the role of functional brain network in delineating neural pathways of Essential Tremor disease sub-types. With his clinical studies background, Dr. Sargolzaei completed his postdoctoral training at GaTech and UCLA teaming with engineers and scientists in pre-clinical and basic science studies. Recently elevated to the level of Senior Member at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Dr. Sargolzaei is currently an assistant professor of Engineering at the University of Tennessee Martin, pursuing his passion for STEM education, research, and outreach.
