A biomedical engineering student at Riphah International University, Momin Ahmed is passionate about science and research and improving the lives of those with specific learning disabilities. After learning that dyslexia is one of the top five most common learning disabilities, he began to investigate physiological parameters, such as brainwaves and eye movement control, in order to develop an easily accessible and inexpensive rehabilitation tool to improve reading skills in young people. As an aspiring evolutionary biologist, he has published two papers on potential treatments for dyslexia and is also currently involved in the development of a machine learning based myoelectric prosthetic limb.
