Kian Jalaleddini

Dr. Jalaleddini received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from McGill University, Montreal, Canada (2015), the MASc in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada (2009), and the B.Sc in Electrical Engineering from University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran (2007). He is currently a postdoctoral scholar in the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at University of Southern California. He is a member of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology and Control System Societies. He has served as the chair of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Chapter, Montreal Section (2011-2015), and secretary of the IEEE Montreal Section (2010-2013). His research interests include analysis of biomedical signals and systems, development and application of system identification tools, exploring biomechanics of human joints and spinal reflexes.
