Zahra is PhD student who recently completed her MS here at the University of Florida. Although Zahra originally joined the program with a non-engineering background, her passion for Medical Physics prevailed.
Her MS research was focused on evaluating the performance of a remote and automated image quality control tool for digital radiography x-ray systems.
Her PhD research will focus on developing MRI sequences for easier evaluations of brain lesions. This research is particularly important to Zahra as it may benefit Alzheimer patients, including her beloved grandma.
In her free time, Zahra enjoys spending time with her husband and their sweet baby girl, Sophia. She also likes to workout, and spend time with family and friends. She also enjoys traveling, and reading in both Farsi and English.
