Benyamin A. Haghi received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering and mathematics from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2016 and the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in 2018, and is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

In summers 2014 and 2015, he was an undergraduate visiting student researcher in Prof. Amin Arbabian’s research group at Stanford University, where he focused on developing an interferogram-based breast tumor classification algorithm and implementing a fast iterative reconstruction algorithm for microwave-induced thermoacoustic imaging, respectively. He started working on seizure detection using a machine learning-based approach when he arrived at Caltech. His research focuses on the design and implementation of robust and high-performance closed-loop brain-machine interface algorithms and the circuits/technologies that compromise them.

Benyamin did an internship at Google Research in Summer 2022, developing a multi-camera on-the-fly neural video rendering algorithm using neural radiance fields (NeRF).

Mr. Haghi was the recipient of the 2017 Caltech Departmental Fellowship, and the 2018 Chen Institute for Neuroscience Fellowship.
