Brief Biography

I’m Mohamed Zaid, a third year Ph.D student in Biomedical Engineering at University of Maine. I’m a member of Laboratory for Computational and Mathematical Modeling in Medicine Engineering and Technology (COMET Lab) led by Dean Giovanna Guidoboni. I graduated from University of Missouri (MO, USA) with a master’s degree in Electrical and Computer engineering and from Polytechnic of Milan (Milan, Italy) with a master’s and bachelor’s degree in Biomedical engineering with specialization in electronic technologies. My master thesis was developed at the Erasmus Medical Center (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) where I studied non-invasive tools for assessing insufflation pressure during laparoscopy.

My current research work focuses are on combining mechanism-driven and data-driven models in physiology, with applications to the neuromodulation of the lower urinary tract and to the non-invasive monitoring of cardiovascular function by using ballistocardiography and by using the eye as a window on the heart. I’m also founder and president of C2SHIP Student & Trainee organization, which aims to promote opportunities for student collaboration and join efforts with academic and industrial partners to develop healthcare technologies for in-place care. I believe that the GSBSE Ph.D. program can provide me with the education, training, and resources necessary to achieve my goals and make significant contributions to the field of biomedical engineering.

Research Interests:

Development of techniques for the non-invasive monitoring of cardiovascular function by using ballistocardiography (BCG).
