Mehdia Nadeem Rajab Ali


MS BMED (Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering), Georgia Institute of Technology (2022 – Present)
MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery), Aga Khan University, Pakistan (2015 – 2021)


Mehdia was born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan where she also attended medical school. Her passion for interdisciplinary science motivated her to explore various kinds of research early on as a medical student. Her first exposure towards using microfluidics for addressing medical qualms was in 2019 at the Meta Acoustic Lab where she focused on using acoustofluidics as a potential treatment for osteoarthritis. Given her medical background and experience with Health tech, Mehdia is a big proponent of translational research which can be bootstrapped to address clinical needs. Mehdia looks to baking, reading, writing, trying out new coffee brews, petting cats and hiking for fun.
