Zahra Motamed is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Her interdisciplinary research approaches have allowed her to form a strong collaborative network with clinical scientists, surgeons, cardiologists, engineers, and mathematicians. Zahra’s work is dedicated to the development of advanced numerical algorithms for simulation of cardiovascular mechanics and patient-specific modelling using medical imaging and clinical measurements. With eight years of industrial experience in the automotive R&D, she is currently using her vehicle design experience to develop new sensing and human health monitoring tools for future smart vehicles. Her group is working towards developing a variant of this technology for future smart houses as well.
