Graduating Student Interview Resources Posted my Biography!

Mohamad Abedi: 949-278-1609, abedim@uci.edu The Henry Samueli School of Engineering. Mohamad originally wanted to be a doctor. He transferred to UCI from Irvine Valley College as a junior and will graduate in June 2014 with a B.S. in biomedical engineering. A Palestinian, Abedi spent summers as a child visiting family in Lebanon refugee camps. The suffering he witnessed left him with a desire to help people. His family lived in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates where his father worked in construction. After high school, Abedi immigrated to Irvine. His younger sister and mother followed. At the Samueli School of Engineering, Abedi discovered biomedical engineering and began doing research in Assistant Professor Elliot Hui’s lab. Abedi first worked on a project that explored building computers that run on air instead of electricity, which could be used to develop diagnostic devices for rural areas. Now he is engineering proteins to control the behavior of cells using light, hoping that this technology will enable the treatment of brain diseases using light. “As a biomedical engineer, you can do something that may affect hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of people at a time,” he says. He recently received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, recognizing him as one of the future leaders in his field, and he is headed to Caltech for graduate school.
