Pegah Hafiz - ESR 12,  Technical University of Denmark

I was born and raised in Shiraz, cultural capital of Iran and studied both Computer Engineering and Medical Informatics in high-standard universities of my city. From high school, I was interested to work on medical systems to assist anyone involved in the healthcare. After four years experience in professional programming as well as hardware simulations, I decided to study Medical Informatics to gain knowledge in this interdisciplinary field, which is full of awesome and challenging "real-world" applications.

I really enjoy observing and reading about bipolar patients to improve the treatment process. Formerly, I designed and implemented a clinical decision support system to diagnose success of In Vitro Fertilization in infertile couples. And now, I’m very excited to design a mobile application for bipolar patients using my experience of working in clinical environment which I acquired during my Master’s degree.

I will do my best to be a dedicated researcher with TEAM designing integrated monitoring and treatment platform for CBT for young people, most importantly, to help patients and to create a better health-care system.
