Peyman Mirtaheri


I work as a professor under the group of biomedical engineering and teach a course in biomedical instrumentations for engineering students at HiOA. We are the only institution in Norway that can educate biomedical engineering students at undergraduate level.

I am leader of optical/ NIRS lab and my main research focuses on application with biomedical sensors in particular using near infrared spectroscopy techniques to measure perfusion in tissue. Recently, I have focused on fNIRS measurements in brain tissue. In collaboration with motion analysis lab we apply these methods to measure and understand the physiological parameters related to the microcirculation (perfusion) in muscle and other tissues. Recently, I am also doing research on fNIRS to measure brain activities and making probes for measurements at deeper tissue layers. For more information please visit our blogs for optical/NIRS lab and motion analysis lab.
