Luay Y. Taha was born in Basra, Iraq on Sep 10, 1959. He received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Basra University, in 1980, the M.Sc. degree in Control and Instrumentation from university of Technology, Baghdad, in 1985, and the PhD degree in Micro-engineering and Nano-Electronics from UKM university, Malaysia, in 2009. From 1986 – 1988 he joined the scientific research council in Baghdad as a researcher in computer engineering and signal processing groups. He was involved in researches related to programmable instrumentation and homomorphic signal processing. In 2008, he joined university of Technology – Department of control and systems as lecturer in digital design and computer buses. From 1999 – 2002 he joined Dubai Aviation College to teach in the department of electronic and aerospace engineering. Since 2002 he worked with Emirates airlines/Emirates Aviation University as an engineering lecturer and a programs developer for Electronics, Avionics and Aerospace Engineering. In 2009, he was appointed as an assistance professor and a programs manager of Electronics, Avionics and Aerospace Engineering departments. On Jan 2014 Luay was promoted to associate professor. Luay worked in the research and development of electrostatic micro power generator, MEMS piezoelectric micro power generator, and published many papers and Journals in this field. He has long teaching experience in various electrical, electronics and computer engineering fields. He joined University of Windsor – Electrical and Computer Engineering department to pursue second PhD degree in Electrical engineering. Luay is an IEEE member since 2004. On April 2017 Luay was appointed as the Vice-Chair of the IEEE Joint Chapter, CAS04/C16 for Windsor Section.
Majid Morshedizadeh received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from K.N.T University of Technology, Tehran, Iran in 2008. His research interests included the application of neural networks in biomedical sciences which led him to defend his thesis titled as “Prediction of Cancer Tumor Growth Applying Artificial Neural”. After seven years of industrial work in the field of Oil and Gas Industry, he joined the Turbulence and Energy Laboratory at the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada in 2015 to pursue his Master’s degree. He is the recipient of Ontario Centre of Excellence Scholarship and currently working as a research and graduate assistant at the University. His ongoing research in the Lab includes performance analysis and monitoring of pitch regulated wind turbines.
