Meet your executives

The Carleton University EMBS chapter executive has grown this year (2019-2020). We are excited to announce that Kristen Beange, Sina Salsabili and Emma Farago have joined the team to improve the chapter's reach and visibility.

Mohammed Abdelazez
M.A.Sc., B.Eng.
Hi! I'm an Electrical and Computer Engineering PhD candidate at Carleton university. I held the position of treasurer of the Ottawa Section for the year of 2017, secretary for the IEEE Carleton University Student Branch for 2013-2014 term, and SPAC 2013 lead. Outside of IEEE I am the logistics chair of Hacking Health Ottawa.
Yasmina Souley Dosso
B.Math., B.Sc.
Hello! I am a PhD Candidate in Biomedical Engineering, specializing in machine vision and deep learning for patient monitoring in the neonatal intensive care unit. I have been an active executive member of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society since 2016, aiming to promote the society and recruit new members while planning social outings. Currently, as Co-Chair, I intend to fulfill our members' professional and educational needs while providing them an inviting and entertaining environment to socialize among peers. With the rest of the team, we plan to run practical workshops and seminars to provide members opportunities in preparation for their next step in life.
Kristen Beange
M.Sc., B.A.Sc.
Social chair
Hello! I am currently in my first year as a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at Carleton University. I am also a member of the Spine Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of Ottawa, where my research focuses on multimodal, data-driven methods for classifying movement phenotypes in patients with low back pain using wearable sensors, and a mobile- / cloud-based platform. This is my first year in the CU@EMBS chapter, and I am excited to be working with such a fun and passionate group!
Madison Cohen-McFarlane
M.A.Sc., B.Eng.
I am currently a PhD candidate specializing ambient non-invasive health monitoring systems that can support older adults maintain their independence. I am passionate about technology and innovation and enjoy coming up with creative ideas to solve real world problems. I have been a student member of IEEE for more than 5 years have attended multiple international IEEE conferences!
Francois Charih
M.A.Sc., B.A.Sc., B.Sc.
Communications officer
I am currently a Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carleton University. My research interests lie at the intersection of bioinformatics, machine learning and drug discovery. I wear multiple hats as part of the chapter. I oversee communications with members through this website, which I developed and maintain, but I also try to lead educational workshops on programming and data analysis-related topics (e.g. data visualization and data analysis). Carleton University's EMBS chapter provides me with a unique opportunity to promote engineering education and to learn continuously.
Sina Salsabili
M.S., B.S.
International outreach officer
I am a PhD candidate in the field of electrical and computer engineering at Carleton university. My research is centered on developing computer vision algorithms for analysis of histopathology images. My main goal is to promote fun and educational activities run by CU@EMBS among international students like myself. I am also excited about giving workshops on deep learning and image processing.
Emma Farago
M.E.Sc., B.E.Sc., B.Sc.
Social media coordinator
I am currently a second year Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carleton University under the supervision of Dr. Adrian Chan. My research interests are directed towards bioelectric signal processing and signal quality improvement for wearable medical devices. I'm also a trainee in the Research and Education in Accessibility, Design, and Innovation (READi) program that is directed towards improving accessibility. This is my first year as an executive for the CU@EMBS chapter and I am super excited for the events that we are planning this year!
Kevin Dick
Hello World! I'm Kevin, a PhD candidate specializing in Machine Learning, Data Science, and Bioinformatics. My research is predominantly centered on improving protein-protein interaction prediction although I am known as a polymath who comes up with interesting ideas in other fields. As Co-Chair of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, I look for any and all oportunities that will inspire innovation at the intersection of engineering and medicine and to empower the curious with the tools to fulfill their ambitions. I am incredibly passionate about running workshops and promoting STEM education! I have been an IEEE Student member for 4+ years!
