curriculum vitae

Bashir Morshed, Ph.D., a recipient of the prestigious Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship, is currently a faculty member of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Herff College of Engineering of the University of Memphis, Memphis, TN, and Director of Embedded Systems Advanced Research and Prototyping (ESARP) lab. Dr. Morshed has completed B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2001. He then moved to Canada to complete M.A.Sc. in 2004, at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the University of Windsor, Windsor, Canada. He earned Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Department of Electronics, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada in 2010 with biomedical concentration. He was a post-doctoral fellow working on interdisciplinary medical device related research at the Medical Devices Innovation Institute (MDI2) of the University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada till 2011. He also worked as a part-time faculty at Algonquin College, Ottawa, Canada from 2009 to 2011. He is a member of The University of Memphis faculty since 2011. His primary research area is embedded systems with applications focused towards biomedical devices. His research aims to resolve challenges at the interface of cyber and physical entities towards the next-generation Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

Dr. Morshed's current research projects include:

1) Wireless, Integrated, Implantable, Integrated and Self-Powered Embedded Device for Neuronal Sensing and Stimulation
Intracortical sensing and stimulation of neurons can provide insight of functionality and reorganization of cortical interconnects, and can essentially be vital tools to treat Epilepsy, Schizophrenia, and many other neuronal disorders. The project aims to develop a wireless, miniature, integrated and self-powered neuronal sensor and ICMS for in vivo applications and being pursued in collaboration with Dr. Kozma, CS.

2) Co-analysis of EEG and HRV using Embedded Miniature Wireless Sensors to Develop Personalized Instructions for Children with Developmental Delays
Children with developmental delays respond in significantly unique manner to common instruction modes. This is extra challenging to determine for children who have certain developmental delays such as autism, cerebral palsy or other delays that make it difficult to observe typical responses. By using miniature, customized, wireless embedded sensors to record EEG and HRV signals and co-analysis of the responses, we expect to develop highly effective personalized instruction plans and classroom curriculum for children with development delays. The project is being pursued in collaboration with Special Kids & Families (SKF).

3) Cyber-physical System (CPS) Development for Sensing and Tactile Actuation for Persons with Severe Visual Impairment
This project aims to develop a CPS system for persons with severe visual impairments using embedded systems by integrating knowledge of a number of disciplines including biological science, sensor technology, embedded systems, low-power wireless technology, mobile and cloud computing, data mining, context aware semantic computation, and compressive sensing. The project collaborator is Dr. Yeasin, EECE.

4) Electrical Impulses for Directional Growth Neurons on a Chip
Neuronal growth patterns and directionality control with electrical impulses on a chip surface based on aerogel substrate is investigated in collaboration with Dr. Sabri, Physics.

5) Analysis of Single Molecule DNA Sequencing Using a CNT
This project investigates the feasibility of a novel structure based on CNT and active enzyme to sequence single molecule DNA. The project collaborator is Dr. Mussivand, University of Ottawa, Canada.
