Short Bio (Short Bio on IEEE TV)

Dr. Rose T. Faghih received a bachelor’s degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering (Honors Program Citation) from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2008, and S.M. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering and computer science with a minor in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2010 and 2014, respectively, where she was a member of two research laboratories: Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at MIT as well as the Neuroscience Statistics Research Laboratory (NSRL), an interdisciplinary lab at MIT and the Massachusetts General Hospital. 

Dr. Faghih currently holds a postdoctoral position at NSRL and the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT. From June 2014 to December 2015, Dr. Faghih held a postdoctoral position at NSRL and the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. Her research interests are in control, estimation, system identification, and modeling neural and physiological systems in health and disease, personalized medicine, and biomedical data science with a focus on neuroendocrine hormones.

Dr. Faghih has won multiple awards, including the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, an MIT Graduate Fellowship, the University of Maryland President's Scholarship, and the University of Maryland’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Chair's Award. In 2016, Dr. Faghih was selected by IEEE-USA and DiscoverE as one of the “New Faces of Engineering.” She has also been inducted into various honor societies including Phi Kappa Phi, Tau Beta Pi, and Eta Kappa Nu.


Dr. Faghih has been writing poetry since first grade, and has published two poetry books. She also enjoys creating digital arts, and has exhibited her artwork at the MIT Graduate Art Soiree.
