formal2Sherry Abbasi, Ph.D.

Visiting Assistant Professor, Electrical Engineering


Sherry Abbasi received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Washington in 2011. In her thesis, titled ‘Integrating top-down and bottom-up nanomanufacturing: Controlling the growth and composition of seeded nanostructures’, an innovative nanomanufacturing method is explored and optimized. Upon graduation, she started her career as Senior System Design Engineer at Lumedyne Technologies. She worked on design, simulation, and testing of a Time Domain Switched (TDS) accelerometer.

Dr. Abbasi joined University of San Diego as a Visiting Assistant Professor for Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering in 2014. She has taught a variety of Electrical Engineering courses including Optoelectronic Materials and Devices, Electrical Circuits, and Electromechanical System Design.

Dr. Abbasi is doing collaborative research with the Bioengineering Department at University of California, San Diego on two separate projects: data analysis of glucose sensors for diabetic patients, and design and implementation of a portable Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) system.
