Dr. Mansouri is a Research Faculty at the Center for Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP) and a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga. He received his M.S. in Biomedical Engineering and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, in 2014 and 2015, respectively. He then completed his postdoctoral training at the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, PA. His Ph.D. work research was focused on combining patient-specific dynamic simulations and neuromuscular control algorithms to determine whether clinical outcomes are favorable when treatment is consistent with biomechanical causes. During his postdoctoral training, he developed biomimetic controllers for myoelectric hand prostheses with sensory feedback. At CUIP, Dr. Mansouri has broad research interests in the areas of smart city healthcare informatics, wearable device, and athletic performance using computer simulations.
