Roozbeh Jafari, an associate professor of electrical engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas, is currently doing a research on how to enable people to use their mind and thoughts in order to get an application running, choose a contact, select a music file or even to turn their Galaxy Note 10.1 table on or off.
Such a progress will be a great help to people with motion disorders as it can allow them to come in contact with the world around them.

Dr. Jafari received a 2012 National Science Foundation CAREER (Faculty Early Career Development) award. The highly selective program funds research of junior faculty members who are considered likely to become leaders in their fields. Recipients are selected on the basis of creative early development plans that effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their respective institutions. The $416,000 five-year-grant began earlier this year.
