Adham Atyabi, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor
Department of Computer Science, UCCS


Dr Atyabi received his B.Sc from Azad University of Mashhad, Iran, his Master of Science by research from Multimedia University, Malaysia (swarm robotics), and his PhD from Flinders University of South Australia (Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience).  In his first postdoctoral training in University of Salford (Manchester UK) he researched and supervised students in multi-swarm multi-mission management systems, robotics, rehabilitation and smart environment. In his second postdoctoral training at Yale Child Study Center in school of medicine at Yale University (New haven, USA), he was a member of Data Acquisition and Analytics Core (DAAC) in Autism Biomarkers and Clinical Trials Consortium (ABC-CT), working on analyzing electroencephalogram (EEG) and eye-tracking data in order to identify robust biomarkers for Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr Atyabi continued his involvement in DAAC and ABC-CT after moving to University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Research Institute (SCRI) during his third postdoctoral training and later as a Research Scientist in SCRI.  

Dr Atyabi joined department of Computer Science in UCCS and established his lab, NeuroCognition Laboratory (NCL), in 2019 where he continues his work on Autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders in addition to several other domains.
