Talk Title: Soft Robotic Sensing Array Catheters for Cardiac Arrythmias

Bobak Mosadegh received his B.S. and M.S. in biomedical engineering from the University of California, Irvine.  He performed undergraduate and graduate level research in Professor Noo Li Jeon’s lab, working on gradient generating microfluidic devices. Dr. Mosadegh received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor while working in the lab of Shuichi Takayama. His research involved the development of microfluidic integrated circuits and various cell patterning methods using aqueous two-phase systems and microfluidic devices.  Under the guidance of George M. Whitesides, Dr. Mosadegh performed his postdoctoral training at Harvard University and the Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering.  His research focused on developing two technologies, i) a 3D paper-based cell culture system for the study of ischemic gradients on cancer cells and cardiomyocytes, and ii) actuators and control systems for soft robotics. Dr. Mosadegh is currently an Associate Professor of biomedical engineering in the department of Radiology, at Weill Cornell Medicine. He also serves as a member of the Dalio Institute of Cardiovascular Imaging and convener for the ISO working group on cardiac occluders. His research now focuses on developing devices and image guidance systems for cardiac interventions using a variety of technologies such as soft robotics, 3D printing, machine learning, and mixed reality.
