Current Faculty Fellows
Haider Raad, Ph.D.
Dr. Haider Raad is a faculty in the Physics Department where he oversees the Engineering program and serves as the director of the Wearable Electronics Research Center (XWERC).
Dr. Raad's project seeks to develop and test a wearable electronic device to prevent against airborne viruses, such as SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19). This device would both limit the need for disposable masks and make protection against airborne and droplet-borne viruses more effective and convenient for the general public.
