Hamid Fehri received his bachelors in Electrical Engineering from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran. His final project in B. Sc. was programming and making wirelessly-readable electricity meters. He subsequently did a master in biomedical engineering where he developed a mathematical model for neurons electrical response to mechanical tension at Amirkabir University of Technology in Tehran, Iran. To pursue his academic journey, he obtained a University of Sheffield Scholarship to undertake doctoral research on automated quantitative analysis of cells in fluorescence microscopy images in January 2015. He is currently developing a method with the use of graphical models for joint segmentation and interpretation of cells in microscopy images taken from zebrafish embryos. Results of this study will improve understanding of host-pathogen interactions that take place during infection disease, which is critical in developing new therapies. This interdisciplinary project is carried out under joint supervision of Dr. Simon Johnston from department of Infection, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease at The University of Sheffield and Prof. Alejandro Frangi from department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at The University of Sheffield.
