Dr. Hagh Gooie specializes in the intersection where engineering meets biological and medical research. He received his Master’s degree in Biomedical engineering at the Monash University Australia in 2006. He then joined Diagnostics and Neuro-signal processing group in the electrical and computer system Eng. department at Monash University working towards development of a quantitative method to diagnose and assess psychiatric disorders. In August 2010 submitted his PhD thesis entitled "Schizophrenia and Electrovestibulography (EVestG)".
He is currently undertaking postdoctoral research in the Department of Physiology at Monash University and is technical specialist at Monash Vision Group aiming to develop a bionic eye for restoring sight in the visually impaired patients. He is involved in development of required software and hardware for testing and conducting preclinical as well as human trials that are all crucial parts of a direct to brain bionic eye system. He is also interested in modeling of how visual information are processed and coded within visual system. His research also includes understanding relationship between cortical motor micro-stimulation behavioral responses in animal models.
