About Davood Khodadad

Davood Khodadad is an associate professor at the department of Applied Physics and Electronics, Umeå University. He received his B.S and M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (Bioelectronics) concentrating on biomedical imaging systems from Sahand University of Technology, Tabriz, and Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, in 2008 and 2011, respectively. Khodadad earned his PhD in Experimental Mechanics in 2016 from Luleå University of Technology, Sweden, where he focused on the development of multispectral and dual-polarization Digital Holography for three-dimensional imaging applied for geometry and quality control purposes. He was a post-doctoral research fellow in Waves, Signals and Systems research group at Linnaeus University to focus on the development of Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) and Diffusion-based Optical Tomography to be applied in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU)  during the years 2016-2018. This background led to his employment at Örebro University as an associate senior lecturer until March 2020. At Örebro University, he worked on X-ray tomographic (CT) methods in order to improve image quality and apply micro CT scan for designing stronger internal structures in complex products as well as to non-destructive methods for verification of eg. Additively Manufactured (AM) products. Khodadad left Örebro University when recruited to Umeå University as an associate professor at the department of Applied Physics and Electronics.
