Biography

Dr. Adnan Elahi is a lecturer in Medical Electronics and Co-director of the Translational Medical Device Lab at the National University of Ireland Galway. He holds a PhD in Electronic Engineering from the National University of Ireland Galway, M.Sc. in Embedded Digital Systems from the University of Sussex, United Kingdom and BS in Computer Engineering from COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT), Lahore, Pakistan. His PhD research was focused on investigation and development of novel signal processing algorithms to improve microwave imaging of the breast. He has over 8 years of research experience in medical device development. His research spans the disciplines of engineering and medicine, with a particular focus on smart devices for chronic disease management; novel and personalised therapeutics using electroporation and neurostimulation; and AI/machine learning for biomedical signals. He is currently leading following research projects:

-Smart-Cardio - A Paradigm Shift in Cardiac Arrhythmia
-AortoWatch - Chronic Implantable Monitor for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
-Development of Intrapartum Fetal Hypoxia Detection Algorithms
-Microwave Imaging for Osteoporosis Detection

He has previously worked as a lecturer (2007-2012) at CIIT Lahore, Pakistan; as a visiting researcher at University of Calgary, Canada; and as a Research Associate at Computer Vision Research Group (COMVIS), Lahore, Pakistan.
