Research Interest

  • Diabetic Foot Ulcer Therapies
  • Deep learning object detection & classification in health care
  • Image Processing
  • Electrical Stimulation


Reza received his BSc in Bioengineering from the University of Maryland and his MSc in Biomedical Engineering with specializations in Medical Imaging-MRI and Epilepsy from University of Calgary. Before joining the PhD program, Reza held research coordinator positions at Zivot Limb Preservation Centre, Alberta Health Services and Orpyx Medical Technologies Inc., where he worked on topics related to diabetic foot ulcer therapies.

Reza is completing his PhD working with Dr. Milos Popovic and Dr. Shehroz Khan. His PhD project explores integrating multi-modal computer vision object detection and classification networks with electrical stimulation therapy to enhance diabetic foot ulcer patients' treatment options. In this research, Reza investigates cellular mechanisms governing a diabetic foot ulcer and optimal electrical waveforms and settings to encourage wound healing. By using artificial intelligence models, Reza aims to link the morphological ulcer properties to those personalized electrical settings required in electrical stimulation therapy.
