Professional Experience

Faryad Darabi Sahneh received a doctorate in electrical engineering in 2014 from Kansas State University. From July 2013-July 2014, he conducted research at the Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine (ICCM) in the department of anatomy and physiology at K-State. After graduation in August 2014, he joined the ECE department as a research assistant professor. Since July 2016, he has also been a visiting faculty at the school of computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology.


Dr. Sahneh’s research focuses on the intersection of complex systems, network science and control theory. His major accomplishments include developing theories for multilayer and interconnected networks, developing the Generalized Epidemic Model Framework software tool (GEMFsim) for the simulation of spreading processes, applying models and tools to risk analysis for human and animal infectious diseases, and developing models of protein corona formation in nanoparticles validated by experimental data. He received the Award of Excellence for Outstanding Contribution in Graduate Research from the ECE department at K-State in 2014.

Academic Highlights

During the past three years, Dr. Sahneh has acted as principle investigator or co-principle investigator of multiple projects sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Total funding granted for these projects exceeds $3M. Dr. Sahneh’s research has been published in more than 30 journals and refereed conference proceedings. He has been actively collaborating with colleagues from the Delft University of Technology and Georgia Institute of Technology.
