Mustafa Mir is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is seeking a post-doctoral research position in a highly interdisciplinary environment to design new instrumentation and analysis tools to study fundamental problems in the areas of biophysics and bioengineering. His graduate research has focused on using novel optical and analytical methods to answer pressing biological questions and has had major impact in the areas of blood screening, cell growth measurements, measuring sub-cellular structure and analyzing organization in developing neural cultures. Mustafa has presented his work through a variety of peer-reviewed journals and at various conferences and technical forums and received two departmental awards in recognition of this work. In addition he has mentored several successful students and volunteered his time to serve in several student leadership roles including organizing a successful seminar series. In the future, he hopes to continue and expand on his interdisciplinary research with collaborators in the areas of neuroscience, cell biology, microelectomechanical systems and theoretical biology.
