Faculty Profile

Dr. Farasat Munir

Assistant Professor

Electrical Engineering

Dr. Farasat Munir received his B.S. in electrical engineering from University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan. Following that he worked in the industry in the field of Image processing, Machine vision, and Communication system design. He later received Fulbright scholarship and went to Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA, where he earned his Masters and Ph.D in electrical engineering. His Ph.D. work focused on the design of highly sensitive and selective biosensors for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. After Ph.D, he joined Emory University, USA as a Post-Doctoral Fellow where he worked on  the design of a biomedical system for radiation compatible ultrasonic image acquisition and processing. Since 2014 he is working as an Assistant Professor in the department of electrical engineering at SBA School of Science and Engineering LUMS, Pakistan. At LUMS his focus is on multidisciplinary experimental research involving areas of Physics, Electrical engineering and Biomedical engineering. His research interests include biosensors, biomedical instrumentation, MEMS, RF and Microwave circuits and Microelectronic fabrication. He has published in several peer reviewed international journals and conferences.
