As a graduate research assistant at Khan Lab@USC, Farhad leads several projects: the development of a skin color-sensitive pulse oximeter, the optical detection of stress through electrodermal activity, aptamer based cortisol detection utlizing extended gate transistor, etc. His role encompasses the entire project lifecycle, from sensor design and fabrication to hardware-app development and data processing. In sensor design phase, he honed the skills in printing μm-scale electronic circuits and designing 4-layer flexible PCBs. Utilizing Forms Lab SLA 3D printing, he crafted intricate 3D structures for fast prototyping. Steering the optical analog front end with an nrf52832 bluetooth low energy (BLE)-based SoC, he ensured seamless wireless data transmission to the mobile app. Additionally, he bring hands-on experience in mobile app design using the CORDOVA platform. In addition to his research contributions, Farhad expanded skills in ASIC design through coursework. He implemented this expertise by designing schematic of a high-performance operational transistor amplifier using 180 nm CMOS technology in Cadence software. Beyond technical accomplishments, Farhad actively mentor undergraduates through the CURVE program, demonstrating his dedication to collaborative learning.

A Virtual Tour to IUT

IUT is a subsidiary organ of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The leaders of the Ummah established this university with a vision to prepare the youth of the ummah to face the challenges of the twenty-first century to regain the lost glory in the field of science, technology and technical education.
