Ali Shtarbanov

I am a Master’s student at the MIT Media Lab with research interests in new interface technologies, human computer interaction, and the internet of things.  After earning degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics, I came to the Media Lab to learn about a broader diversity of topics, and to pursue a more interdisciplinary research trajectory.

Previously, I have worked on projects spanning much of the Electrical Engineering spectrum – from signal processing, to digital design, to electromagnetism. More recently, my focus has been more product-oriented, with current projects in the areas of HCI and IoT.  For my latest project I am also starting to explore the fields of materials science and polymer science.
