Clinical Engineering (University of Toronto)
Tahir is currently in his second year of pursuing an MHSc in Clinical Biomedical Engineering at IBBME. His research focuses on evaluating the biomechanics of upper-limb therapy for stroke recovery, in contribution to the project: Intelligent Haptic Robotic Device for Upper-Limb Stroke Patients. His project will help refine design criteria for future versions of the robot.
Tahir completed his undergraduate degree in Engineering Science (Biomedical Engineering option) at the University of Toronto in 2009. His fourth-year thesis involved examining a polymeric drug delivery system for chemotherapeutic agents. Following his undergrad, he spent a year working and volunteering within the clinical environment, where he developed an interest in Clinical Engineering.
