Mohamed Elgendi at MIT

Charles Darwin University PhD candidate Mohamed Elgendi has returned from Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, where he presented papers based on his research.

Mohamed presented three papers as a major contribution to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers 35th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference held at Merck Research Laboratories and Harvard Medical School.

Following his presentation at Harvard, Mohamed was invited as a guest speaker by the Laboratory for Computational Physiology at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology.

Mohamed said he felt extremely lucky to have presented at such well-known and leading institutions.

“My experience at CDU is unbelievable. Two years ago, I was awarded a scholarship from MIT to attend the Professional Institute's program, Data and Models in Engineering, Science and Business, held on the MIT campus,” he said.

Last year, one of Mohamed’s papers was accepted by Stanford University. This year, three papers have been accepted by the Harvard Medical School as well as an invited talk at Harvard-MIT.

“The support of my supervisors, Friso De Boer and Mirjam Jonkman, has enabled me to publish in the top-ranked bioengineering conference worldwide for which I’m most grateful,” he said.

“I would like to thank Professor Graham Pegg and Associate Professor Karen Gibb for their help to improve the outlook of PhD students at CDU by supporting them to interact with other excellent national and international research centres in the field.”
