Faculty Profile

Mr. Waqas Majeed

Assistant Professor

Electrical Engineering

Waqas Majeed received BS in Electrical Engineering from GIK Institute, Pakistan (2000-2004, gold medalist). During his PhD in bioengineering at Georgia Tech, USA (2005-2010), his research involved fMRI-based functional connectivity, manganese-enhanced MRI for neuronal tract-tracing and diffusion-tensor imaging. The focus of his thesis work was detection and characterization of propagating waves of spontaneous activity in humans and rats using fMRI. His postdoctoral research at Vanderbilt University, USA (Department of Radiology) involved data-driven analysis of noisy fMRI data to isolate weak and focal patterns of neural activity. His goals are to establish a career in academia, promote multidisciplinary medical imaging research and develop links between academia and clinicians.
