Dr. Etezad has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering. She is passionate about teaching and the environment. That is why our research is focused on creating a better environment for education and living.
The overall goal of this project is to integrate braille and graphics on the same platform, using a small dynamic tactile grid. This project will characterize user acceptability of a dynamic tactile system when the braille or graphical patterns are presented in a personalized manner.

I am a Sophomore Computer Engineering major with an Analytics minor. My expected graduation date in Spring 2024. In my massive amount of free time, I enjoy playing a bunch of different sports, including: Baseball, Soccer, Volleyball, and Golf. I am excited to work with my peers on this FMCW radio project to further my education.

The Etezad Research Lab at Chapman University is investigating how to create radar sensors for various applications such as enhancing the classroom experience, student behavior detection, and solving environmental sustainability challenges.
Our main project is focused on using a portable FMCW (Frequency-Modulated Continuous Wave) Radar to detect and track student attentiveness in classrooms. The goal of this project is to give instructors a tool to measure the attentiveness of students during lectures to help them improve their pedagogical techniques.
Congratulations to Samuel Bernsen and Daniel Dinh for winning the SURF award.
