New visiting PhD student

We welcome Mohammad Salmanpour, who has been working with us closely since 2017 (from Tehran Polytechnic), now staying with us as exchange PhD student. Mohammad focuses on improved prediction of outcome in Parkinson’s disease (PD) using machine learning algorithms.

Here are two of his recent papers with us, one on prediction of cognitive outcome (2019):

Prospective Students

Graduate Students

We actively recruit talented MSc and PhD students from the University of British Columbia Physics, Interdisciplinary Oncology Program, Biomedical Engineering, and Electrical & Computer Engineering. If joining via the Physics or Medical Physics Program, please see Graduate Program Financial Information page, including information on salary. However, please note that our student RA salaries are substantially higher, set at minimum of $24,000 annually, in addition to standard TA pay for both MSc and PhD as well as tuition remission for PhD students.

Undergraduate Students
