MSc K.N. Nanbakhsh

PhD student
Bioelectronics (BE), Department of Microelectronics

Expertise: Integrated circuits and systems for implantables, biosensors and microfabrication

Themes: Health and Wellbeing


I received my B.Sc. degree from Urmia University, Iran, and my M.Sc. degree from University of Tehran, Iran, in 2009 and 2012, respectively, all in electrical engineering. Later I moved to Eindhoven, The Netherlands, to join Sapiens Steering Brain Stimulation, a start-up company developing a high-resolution deep brain stimulation (DBS) system. After the acquisition of Sapiens by Medtronic, I continued my work as a senior scientist designing experiments to ensure long-term biostability and biocompatibility of thin-film electrodes during neural stimulation and recording.

My goal is to combine the knowledge of microelectronics and microfabrication to develop miniaturized medical devices.

During my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling and doing sports.
