Biography

Bahman Nasseroleslami was born in Tehran, Iran in 1981. He received the B.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2003, and the M.Sc. degree in biomechanical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2006. He received his Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, UK, in 2013. He was with the Department of Biology, Northeastern University, Boston, MA, USA, as a Research Associate (2012) and a Postdoctoral Research Associate (2013-2014). He joined Academic Unit of Neurology in Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, Dublin, Ireland as a Research Fellow in 2014 and is now an Irish Research Council (IRC) Postdoctoral Research Fellow. His research area includes neural control of human movement, EEG/EMG and electrophysiological correlates of neuro-motor activity, diagnostic biomarkers in Motor Neuron Disease (MND), and neural engineering. He is the author of 11 articles (4 as the first author, 2 as the last author) in peer-reviewed journals. Dr Nasseroleslami is a member of IEEE, IEEE EMBS, Society for Neuroscience (SfN), International Society of Electrophysiology & Kinesiology (ISEK), International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and Neuroscience Ireland. He was a recipient of a 3-year Ph.D. scholarship award from Scottish Funding Council (SFC) in 2008 and Government of Ireland 2-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from IRC in 2015. His research paper in Journal of Biomechanical Engineering was selected as an editors' choice paper in 2014.
