Negar Tavassolian received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, and McGill University, Montreal, Canada, in 2003 and 2006, respectively. Her masterís thesis was focused on microwave breast cancer detection using ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna technology. She received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA in 2011. Her work was focused on reducing the dielectric charging effects and improving the reliability of capacitive micro-electromechanical (MEMS) switches for radio frequency (RF) and microwave applications. She then joined the David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Postdoctoral Associate, where she developed a platform for non-invasive and real-time determination of hydration state in an individual based on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxation measurements. She has been as Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology since August 2013.
