Bahman Nasseroleslami received the B.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2003, and the M.Sc. degree in biomechanical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2006. He received his Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, UK, in 2013.

He was with the Department of Biology, Northeastern University, Boston, MA, USA, as a Research Associate (2012) and a Postdoctoral Research Associate (2013-2014). He joined Academic Unit of Neurology in Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, Dublin, Ireland as a Research Fellow in 2014, and then worked a Senior Research Fellow. He is currently the Fr Tony Coote Assistant Professor in Neuroelectric Signal Analysis in MND, a Principal Investigator, and the Research Strand Leader of the neural signal analysis and neurophysiological biomarkers in the Motor Neuron Disease research group at Trinity College Dublin. His research area includes neural control of human movement, EEG/EMG and electrophysiological correlates of neuro-motor activity, diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in Motor Neuron Disease (MND), and neural engineering. He has received more than €1,400,000 competitive research funding as Principal Investigator from Irish Research Council (IRC), Health Research Board (HRB) and Research Motor Neurone (RMN) of Ireland; Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association (ALSA), and more than €1,400,000 as co-investigator. He is the author of 24 articles (17 as the first or last author) in international peer-reviewed journals.
Dr Nasseroleslami is a member of IEEE, IEEE EMBS, Society for Neuroscience (SfN), International Society of Electrophysiology & Kinesiology (ISEK), Organisation for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM), Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and Neuroscience Ireland. He was a recipient of a 3-year Ph.D. scholarship award from Scottish Funding Council (SFC) in 2008 and Government of Ireland 2-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from IRC in 2015. His research paper in Journal of Biomechanical Engineering was selected as an editors’ choice paper in 2014.

He was awarded the Research Ally Prize by IRC in 2021 for his role as a mentor and his team members have received numerous recognitions and awards, such best poster awards, as well as several postgraduate and postdoctoral research fellowships from national and international funding bodies and charities.

In the Precision ALS workshop he leads the Neurophysiology and Neural Signal Analysis as part of the Biomarkers work package.
