The Department's main objectives are to conduct internationally competitive research, and deliver high quality teaching.

Within each of our five research groups the faculty staff, together with their research associates and students, are working at an internationally competitive level. The outcomes of the research can be seen in many industrial and commercial applications as well as is high quality publications.

We are fortunate to enjoy the support of a wide variety of funding agencies and companies. We are most grateful for this support which from the smallest to the largest amount epitomises the variety and scope of the research work carried out. Research is vibrant and attracts around £3.5 million investment each year.

The Department maintains a strong commitment to teaching, both at undergraduate and higher degree level. Our popular undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses attract excellent students, and our graduates are sought by industry and commerce around the world.

Sara Ghoreishizadeh

Position: Imperial College Research fellow
E-Mail: s.ghoreishizadeh14 [AT] imperial.ac.uk

I am an Imperial College Research Fellow in the Electrical Engineering department at Imperial College London. I received a PhD in Microelectronics from Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in March 2015, following MSc and BSc degrees from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in 2009 and 2007, respectively.

I joined the Centre for Bio-inspired Technology (CBIT) as a Research Associate in April 2015. Since December 2015 my research is supported by a three-year fellowship from Imperial College London. My research interest spans the broad area of analog/mixed-signal integrated circuit (IC) and system design for applications in implantable and wearable medical devices for diagnostics. In particular, I explore innovative methods to co-design the electronics, biosensors, and energy source in order to develop miniaturised and autonomous biosensing Microsystems.

I am a member of IET, IEEE, and IEEE CAS, SSC and EMB societies. I am on the editorial board of the Journal of Microelectronics.
