Fahad Salman


Ph.D. student




About

Fahad is currently undertaking his graduate studies in Biomedical Engineering. His research focuses on the analysis of iron levels in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients over time, using Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM). He is currently working on improving and automating the QSM reconstruction process, with the aim of applying it to a large dataset of both MS patients and healthy individuals. Fahad enjoys the challenge of finding the best way to bring different methods together to produce an optimal and robust output.

In his free time, Fahad loves to stay active and informed. He reads new papers related to his field, works out, and learns more about nutrition and body. Fahad is a God-fearing person who cherishes spending time with himself and his family. He also has a deep appreciation for nature, which he enjoys exploring by taking walks.
