Hamid Charkhkar received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2015 from George Mason University, Fairfax, VA. He is a postdoctoral scholar in the department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH and an investigator at Advanced Platform Technology (APT) Center at Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. His past research projects included developing technology for neural applications, designing functional assays for drug screening, and assessing the biocompatibility of novel materials for BCI applications. During his graduate and post-graduate training, he has worked closely with multidisciplinary teams in government, academia, and industry. He has published multiple peer-reviewed articles and served as a reviewer for several professional journals and conferences. In his most recent project, funded by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), he is working to restore natural sensation to lower limb amputees by delivering electrical stimulation to the peripheral nervous system.
