Mahsa Shoaran is an Assistant Professor in the Center for Neuroprosthetics and Electrical Engineering Institute of EPFL, and director of the Integrated Neurotechnologies Laboratory (INL). From 2017 to 2019, she was an Assistant Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, and a Postdoctoral Fellow in Electrical and Medical Engineering at Caltech from 2015 to 2017. She received her PhD from EPFL in 2015, working on high-density cortical implants for medically refractory epilepsy.
Her group specializes in designing low-power integrated circuits for neural recording and neurostimulation through implantable or wearable systems, for a variety of neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, traumatic brain injury, migraine, mental disorders and SCI. Specifically, her research lies at the intersection of circuit design, machine learning, and neuroscience, with the goal of developing new therapeutic devices for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. Mahsa is a recipient of the 2019 Google Faculty Research Award in Machine Learning, the Swiss NSF Postdoctoral Fellowships, and the NSF Award for Young Professionals Contributing to Smart and Connected Health. She was named a Rising Star in EECS.
