Shima Abadi received her B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tehran, Iran in 2008, her M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2010, and her M.S. degree in Applied Mathematics and her Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2013. She was a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at the Columbia University and a Visiting Scientist at the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington from 2013 to 2015. She is currently an Associate Professor in Engineering & Mathematics and an Adjunct Associate Professor in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Adjunct Associate Professor in Oceanography at the University of Washington. Her research primarily focuses on acoustical signal processing in ocean sciences. She worked on a broad range of topics such as ocean noise interferometry, blind deconvolution, sound source localization, direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation, acoustical imaging, and animal bioacoustics. Dr. Abadi has received two best paper awards from the Acoustical Society of America in 2009 and 2013. She is currently working on mitigating seismic airgun noise, analyzing ocean ambient noise, and developing graph signal processing algorithms for analyzing data collected by large, dynamic, and irregular underwater networks.
