Iyad Obeid

Faculty lead
Temple University

Dr. Obeid is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering with a secondary appointment in Bioengineering. His research focuses recording and decoding signals from neural tissue. This includes applications for brain computer interfaces, brain-in-a-dish studies, and traumatic brain injury. His lab has made extensive use of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology to make and decode massively parallel neural recordings. Dr. Obeid is a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award as well as a Lindback Award for distinguished teaching.
