Dr. Zahra Abbasi is an Assistant Professor, at the Department of Electrical and Software Engineering, University of Calgary, since September 2021. Prior to that, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Waterloo Microfluidics Lab, University of Waterloo. She received her Ph.D. degree in Nanosystems and Microsystems from M2M lab the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada, in 2020. and her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in telecommunication and electronics engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST), Iran, in 2014 and 2016.
During her Ph.D. and postdoc, she focused on designing microwave planar sensing structures for distant, non-invasive, and real-time sensing. The designs Dr. Abbasi developed have enabled a wide range of applications, from oil and gas harsh environment sensing to a non-invasive glucose monitoring device.
