KN

Kia Nazarpour, PhD, SMIEEE

Principal Investigator
Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering
School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Newcastle University

Kia received the BSc degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2003  from KN Toosi University of Technology, Tehran. He received the MSc degree in Bioelectronics from Tarbiat Modaress University, Tehran in 2005. Kia moved to UK in 2005 and received his PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Cardiff University in 2008.

From 2007 to 2009 he was a research fellow in the
Chris Miall's PRISM laboratory at the University of Birmingham. He moved to Newcastle University in 2009 to work as a postdoc in Andy Jackson's Brain-Machine Interface laboratory at the Institute of Neuroscience. Kia worked for Touch Bionics, ltd for one year as a Senior Algorithm Engineering and returned to academia as a Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering in July 2013.

Research Interests: Biomedical engineering, statistical and adaptive signal processing for brain- and muscle-machine interface technology
