Dr. Bashir I. Morshed is an Associate Professor at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (EECE), the University of Memphis, since 2011. He has received the B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2001. He has completed the M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Windsor in 2004 and earned Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Department of Electronics, Carleton University in 2010. He was a post-doctoral fellow at the Medical Devices Innovation Institute, the University of Ottawa. He is a recipient of the Canadian Commonwealth Fellowship in 2002, Indira Gandhi Memorial Fellowship in 2004 and 2006, and Ontario Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology (OGSST) in 2008. He has published 25+ journal articles and 50+ referred conference papers, one of which received the first place award. He has 1 granted patent and 3 patent applications pending. He has received research grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) as a Principal Investigator (PI) and other extramural funding as collaborators.
Dr. Morshed's research interests are body-worn electronic patch sensor development using inkjet printing and utilization of these and other wearables for mobile health applications utilizing machine learning. Embedded systems (ES) are electronic information processing elements embedded into cyber-physical systems (CPS) and contain micro-controllers dedicated for sensing, actuation, and/or control. Our research group focuses on cutting-edge ES combined with nanotechnology and Inkjet printed (IJP) additive manufactured flexible electronics for ultra-low power or zero-power wearables & body-worn sensors and artificially intelligent (AI) real-time signal processing techniques at Edge Computing realized with smartphones for mobile health (mHealth) applications towards Smart and Connected Communities (SCC) and Smart Cities.
Our research is/was supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Strengthening Communities Initiative (SCI) and multiple FedEx Innovation and Technology Development grants. We have established many external collaborations including Special Kids & Families (SKF), Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, and Memphis District of the United Methodist Church (UMC) for our research studies. Due to the highly trans-disciplinary nature of our research, we collaborate with researchers from varied disciplines (Biomedical Engineering, Psychology, Neurology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, educators, and medical professionals) that span across various institutes (UTK, UTHSC, UNT). We acknowledge generous donations from Cypress Semiconductor, DRS Technologies, and Smith & Nephew and travel fundings from IIS.
