Dr. Shokrollahi is a research scholar at the Department of Radiology, with a research focus on developing an artificial intelligence system for preimage protocols on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT) scans. He completed his PhD at the University of Toronto (UofT) in Biomedical Engineering before moving to the Radiology Department in 2020. He earned his master's and a bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research focused on developing magnetically actuated devices, MRI-compatible surgical robots, and machine learning techniques for medical applications. He developed and implemented a magnetically actuated microrobot for sampling microbiome in the gastrointestinal tract, an MRI-compatible robot for pediatric bone biopsy, and an automated system for detecting eye movements during sleep. In addition to research, Dr. Shokrollahi taught four courses at the undergraduate and graduate level at UofT and Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada. He is a member of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
