EDUCATION
Azad University (Iran), Software Engineering, BS

BIOGRAPHY
Parya is a research fellow at the Neurophotonics Center. She uses functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to perform cognitive neuroscience study and mainly focuses on the brain function of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Prior to joining BU, she was a visiting student at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital. She has a bachelor’s in Software Engineering. She has hands-on experience with fNIRS in the research field of cognitive neuroscience, and also using DCS on patients with Stroke.

BIOGRAPHY
Dr. Seong-Wook Park joined the Neurophotonics Center and the B.O.A.S. group as a research scientist. Previously he was a senior research engineer at U2MedTek – a start-up company that specializes in building medical devices to diagnose sinusitis. His novel design helped advance the instrument from a research prototype to a commercially available diagnostic tool. Before the start-up, he was a post-doctorial scholar at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) where his work helped develop a stand-off landmine detection system using spectroscopic techniques. He holds two patents in Korea for the unique design of the diagnostic mouth-piece and the laser scanning system in landmine detection.
