Payam is a Ph.D. candidate in Manufacturing Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). He received his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Azad University, Iran in 2007, his M.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran in 2010, and he joined the CHSLT labs from 2014 as a research assistant. His research is mainly focused on developing non-destructive high-speed holographic methodologies to study the transient motions of the human tympanic membrane (eardrum) in live samples to provide the necessary tools for investigation of sound energy transformation by the middle ear. These tools may also be applied to the clinic for better diagnosis of the tympanic membrane and middle-ear pathologies. His research is part of a collaboration with Massachusetts Eye and Ear Hospital, in Harvard/MIT Division of Health Sciences and technology
