Sayeh Bayat is a Ph.D. candidate in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto. Her Ph.D. thesis focuses on the relationship between older adults, especially those with dementia, and their environment. She is using GPS technology to monitor the mobility and transportation patterns of these individuals. In her research, Sayeh is applying artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to investigate the barriers to and facilitators for outdoor mobility and life-space of older adults and older adults with dementia. Sayeh is passionate about making accessible age- and dementia-friendly communities.
