RamshaniZeinab Ramshani

(B.S. Biomedical Engineering, Azad University (Tehran, Iran), 2005; M.S. Electrical Engineering, University of Technology (Tehran, Iran) 2009, Ph.D. Electrical and Computer Engineering, Western Michigan University, 2017-expected)

co-advised with Prof. Hsueh-Chia Chang
Zeinab is A.B.D. from Western Michigan University, but has been working with the Go Research Group since 2015. In 2017, she joined the group offically as a Research Fellow and will transistion to a post-doctoral position after submitting her Ph.D. thesis. Zeinab works both on piezoelectric transformer-driven spray coating (PT-spray) and the development of Ssurface acoustic wave (SAW)-based lab-on-a-chip.
