Faezeh Arab Hassani (BSc, MSc, PhD, SMIEEE, FHEA) received her PhD degree in Electronics Engineering from the University of Southampton, United Kingdom, in 2012. Dr Arab Hassani then joined the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST), Japan, for her Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) post-doctoral fellowship (2012-2013). She continued her research career at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore (2013-2014), University of Sheffield, United Kingdom (2014-2016), and the N.1 Institute of Health (former Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology), NUS, Singapore (2016-2019). Dr Arab Hassani received a JSPS invitational fellowship to conduct research at the University of Tokyo, Japan (2019-2020). She joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Bristol, as a lecturer in 2020. She is currently the Programme Director of MSc Advanced Microelectronic Systems Engineering at the University of Bristol. Her research interests include micro/nano-electronics, micro/nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) hybrid devices, sensors, actuators, and energy harvesters for healthcare and environmental applications.
