PhD thesis (Jun 2015): Stretchable Micro-Electrode Arrays for Electrophysiology
Promotor: Ronald Dekker

Expertise: Biomedical Engineering


Saeed Khoshfetrat Pakazad was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1980. He received his B.Sc. degree in Electronics Engineering from K.N.Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2003. He has two M.Sc. degrees, the first one in Electrical Engineering from Tehran Polytechnic University in 2006, and the second M.Sc. degree with distinction in Biomedical Engineering from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, in 2010. Since September 2010, he is pursuing the Ph.D. degree with Delft University of Technology in the Flexible and Stretchable Electronics group. He is currently working on the development of a stretchable multi-electrode array chip for drug screening in collaboration with Philips research and Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC).
