Peyman Mirtaheri


Peyman Mirtaheri is a full Professor of biomedical engineering at MEC at OsloMet and an adjunct professor at the Biomedical Engineering faculty at Michigan Tech ( In addition, he teaches medical sensors and actuators at the ACIT master program (ACIT4720).
He is also the leader of the NIRS/optical lab, which was established in 2009.
His research focus is on:
1) developing new measuring technologies to detect brain activities
2) using the existing technologies such as fNIRS and EEG to understand motion and balance and related activities in the cerebral cortex.

He has also initiated the ADEPT (Advance health intelligence and brain-inspired technologies) research platform consisting of members from faculties of Technology, Art, and Desing-and Health Sciences at Oslo Metropolitan University.

He is currently the project manager and PI of two large projects:
1) PACER, RCN, )
2) MgSafe ( MSCA-ITN Horizon 2020, )
3) Future running shoes (IP-N project at RCN in collaboration with Gaitline AS)
