Main content

Amirehsan Sarabadani Tafreshi is a PhD candidate at the sensory-motor systems lab. Amir’s work focuses on development of closed-loop cardiovascular biofeedback systems for rehabilitation of bed rest patients and astronauts. In his research he combines various perspectives of medicine and engineering, such as cardiovascular system’s physiology, signal processing, pattern recognition, statistical modelling, human-robot interaction, and control theory. Amir teaches some of these topics in different courses such as in physiological modelling lectures of introduction to biomedical engineering II course.  For his research, Amir collaborates with various clinical, industrial and research partners across the Europe including Hocoma AG, Switzerland and some others through the STAMAS project.

Amir received his M.Sc. degree in robotics, systems, and control from ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland in 2011. He gained industrial experience through various internships including an eight month stay at ABB Switzerland, where he developed and implemented signal processing algorithms for a product currently available in the market.  After completing his master’s thesis at ETH Zurich on development of a robust visual-inertial algorithm for simultaneous localization and mapping of quadrocopters, he joined the SMS lab as a PhD student in February 2012.
