S. FAROKH ATASHZAR is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at New York University (NYU). He received his Ph.D. in 2016 and has recently joined NYU. His research interests include areas of applied computer science, robotics, Neurorehabilitation robots, neuroscience, smart prostheses, and human-robot augmentation. Prior to joining NYU, Atashzar was a senior postdoctoral scientist in the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College, University of London, UK, sponsored by Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada. From February 2017 to August 2018, he served as a postdoctoral research associate at Canadian Surgical Technologies and Advanced Robotics (CSTAR) center. His many awards include the highly-competitive Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) in 2013 and an NSERC PostDoctoral Fellowship (PDF) in 2018. He was ranked among the top 5 applicants in Canada for the 2018 NSERC PDF competition in the Electrical and Computer Engineering sector. Atashzar has served as the lead guest editor for two special issues: (a) “Intelligent Human-Robot Interaction for Rehabilitation and Physical Assistance,” in IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, and (b) Autonomy and Intelligence in Neurorehabilitation Robotic and Prosthetic Technologies," in the Journal of Medical Robotics Research. He is the publication co-chair of the 2020 International Symposium on Medical Robotics (ISMR), Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA. Atashzar is a general chair of the Symposium on “Advanced Bio-Signal Processing and Machine Learning for Assistive and Neurorehabilitation Systems” at the 2019 IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing (GlobalSIP2019).
