Undergraduates Contributing to ECE Research: Omar Omari

Each summer, undergraduate students make significant contributions to research projects at ECE while working as interns. This is the first of four interviews with undergraduate research interns working closely with ECE faculty members and graduate students. Omar Omari is a 3rd year ECE student in the biomedical option. His research internship is supervised by Dr. Rabab Ward and he is working closely with PhD student Ehsan Nezhadaria and Dr. Hossein Sameti.   What project are you working on this summer?
