Masters Candidate

(University of Toronto)



Tamim received his Bachelors of Applied Science in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 2020. Through his university's co-op program, Tamim accumulated experience over various internships working with biomedical technology and wearable devices. Tamim began his Master of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering at Intelligent Assistive Technology and Systems Lab and working with Dr. Shehroz Khan in the Fall of 2020. His thesis involves correlating location indices with the exertion of various symptoms and behaviours of dementia patients. It is hoped that these findings will help improve care for residents in long-term care.

His main research interests include:

  • Wearable technologies
  • Assistive technologies
  • Rehabilitation engineering

In addition, he has an interest in bioethics, neuroscience and the Philosophy of Mind which he hopes to integrate into his future academic pursuits.
