Azadeh Vosoughi  Ph.D

Associate Professor Ph.D, Electrical and Computer Engineering Cornell University.

Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UCF. She received her B.S. degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 1997, her M.S. degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA, in 2001, and her Ph.D. degree from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 2006, all in Electrical Engineering.


She received the NSF CAREER award in 2011 for her research on the integration of signal processing and communications for decision fusion in distributed detection systems. Prior to joining the faculty at UCF, she was an Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester.


She is serving as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, the IEEE Signal Processing Letters, and the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. She is a member of the IEEE Signal Processing, Communication, and Information Theory societies.

Homero Daniel Rodriguez

Physics & Electrical Engineering Research Student, Project Team's Leader.

I'm a Physics and Electrical Engineering student at UCF. I'm the leader for our project "UCF students for the visually impaired". We are conducting a research to learn more about the visually impaired community and  help them by the exercise of engineering, 


We want to understand their true needs and help specially low income community by creating free tools for them since most of the visual aid tools are really expensive.


We want to create opportunities and a more accessible and inclusive world. Our time and effort will help low income and low vision community to have a better access to education, life and the opportunity to succeed.

Carlos Acosta

Electrical engineering Research student 

Hola, my name is Carlos Acosta and I am an Undergraduate Electrical Engineer at UCF. I have passed research experience thanks to the F-LEARN program and even won the Student Scholar Symposium for 2021 with my group's research into PPG sensors. I'm now in the HUT program at UCF and starting to look into my own research, since I have found a new passion for it.


I joined this project because I wanted to expand my interests in Electrical Engineering research as well as have the opportunity to help those in need.

Abdul - Malik Mustapha

Electrical engineering Research student 

My name is Abdul-Malik Mustapha. I am a rising senior studying Electrical Engineering at the University of Central Florida. My research interests include power electronics and control system design.


I have been involved in various engineering projects from my freshman year such as the Navel Boat Orange Race and TI-Robot Maze Race. My main interest in this project is to learn more about technological devices that make things easier and accessible for people with disabilities.


I believe in the goal and impact this project stands to have at UCF because we focus on diversity and inclusion and what better way to promote that than to introduce a project like this to the UCF community.
