Maziar received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran, in 2017, and the M.Sc. degree in telecommunication engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran, in 2021. He started his professional research work with his honors thesis on the “Design, Simulation and Analysis of Left-Handed Metamaterial Transmission Lines” to finding a closed-form formula for permittivity of circular Split-Ring Resonators (SRRs). He continued his research on designing millimeter-wave imaging systems with multi-static antenna arrays as his master’s thesis entitled “Analysis, Simulation, and Improvement of Point Spread Function in Millimeter-Wave Imaging System.” Maziar is currently a Ph.D. student at the Waterloo Microfluidics Lab under the co-supervision of Prof. Carolyn Ren and Dr. Zahra Abbasi.
His research focuses on integrating active and passive microwave circuits and sensors with microfluidic devices for real-time monitoring, controlling, heating, and content sensing of individual droplets.
He served as a teaching assistant of several undergraduate and graduate courses, and also was elected as the Secretary of the Student Scientiﬁc Association of Electrical Engineering, Shahid Beheshti University, Deputy Secretary of the Liberal Students Association, Shahid Beheshti University, and the Managing Editor of Student Scientific Magazine, Kahroba.
Apart from being a full-time student, he enjoys hanging out with friends, biking, and exploring most of his spare time. Maziar is also a photography enthusiast; he held two exhibitions titled Fall and Our Society.
