Naghmeh Bandari

I develop optical tactile sensors for minimally invasive surgery. These sensors integrate with surgical instruments used in remote surgery to recreate the sense of touch.

Naghmeh Bandari received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in biomedical engineering from Amirkabir University of Tehran, Iran, where she served as a Certified Medical Device Technical Supervisor for six years. She is a doctoral candidate of Mechanical Engineering at the Optical-Bio-MEMS and Robotic Surgery Labs. She is also a fellow of Surgical Innovation at the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) CREATE program for Innovation-at-the-Cutting-Edge (ICE). Her research focuses on the development of optical tactile sensors and micro-optical mechanical systems for robotic and surgical applications.
