Co-Founder and CEO
Dr. Amir Mirbeik is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of RadioSight. He received the B.Sc and M.Sc. degrees from University of Tehran, Iran, in 2010 and 2013, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in 2018. He received the inaugural Paul Kaplan Award for Distinguished Doctoral work at Stevens Institute of Technology. He received the IEEE BioCAS Student Travel Award. He was also the recipient of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Doctoral Fellowship during at Stevens. This program recruits highly motivated doctoral candidates who have strong scientific and technical backgrounds, and who have entrepreneurial aspirations.
Dr. Mirbeik invented the synthetic ultra-wideband imaging technique during his PhD studies at Stevens Institute of Technology. He has been working on the development of this technology since 2014 and is highly committed to further developing this platform within the context of the academic-innovation-transfer process. So far, he has 8 high-impact journal articles, 5 peer-reviewed conference papers, and one US patents related to the invented technology. The invented technology has been supported by an NSF CAREER award since 2016. Also, in Summer 2018, he participated as the Entrepreneurial Lead in an I-Corps program funded by NSF. Their team conducted over 100 interviews with potential customers and partners including dermatologists and medical imaging companies to better understand the market need, reimbursement factors for the imaging technology.
