About me:

I pursued my BSc in Textile Engineering with a major in Chemical Wet Processing of Polymers. I like to work with smart and electronics textiles for biomedical applications. After completing my MSc in Biosystems Engineering, I worked at BOEING Canada; however, very soon, I changed my career and went to become a Assistant Buyer for a major fashion retailer in Canada and saw the potential of electronic textiles. Hence, I decided to further my study and learn about wearable electronics and, thus, pursued my second Master's in Textile Science while I was a research intern in MITACS Canada for 1.5 years, and worked on developing two mathematical models to describe the heating & cooling efficiency of flexible (electrothermal) joule heating wearables.

My HTMAA projects (Sep-Nov 2021):

  • Project 01- Exploring Few Ideas (and associated 2D models) for My Final Project: Smart Electronic Textiles- Towards a Personalized Healthcare System
