Shabnam Haghzare

I am a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at University of Toronto under the supervision of Dr. Alex Mihailidis and Dr. Jennifer Campos. My PhD project is broadly focused on investigating the acceptability and safety of using automated vehicles by older adults. I come from a background in Electrical Engineering where my undergrad research was focused on Brain-Computer Interfaces in applications of emotion recognition and prosthetics control. I am broadly interested in questions related to the human compatibility of artificial intelligence to expand the abilities of people living with impairments.
