Congratulations to ECE PhD student Mohammad Jafari, who has been awarded the 2022 Governor General’s Gold Medal. This prestigious award goes to the graduating doctoral student who has achieved the most outstanding academic record in their year.
Mohammad’s high-achieving studies took place under supervisor Purang Abolmaesumi at the Robotics and Control Laboratory, where he studied deep learning for medical imaging. After graduation, he will continue his investigations into artificial intelligence as technical director of AI at Aspect Biosystems.
I plan to continue my research in artificial intelligence (AI) and healthcare. Currently, I work as technical director of AI at Aspect Biosystems, a Canadian company that’s pioneering 3D bioprinting and tissue engineering. I hope to make impactful contributions to this field, working towards the next generation of AI solutions and AI accelerated therapeutics.
