Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering
Research Interests: Farsiu's research focuses on medical imaging and image processing to improve the overall health and vision outcome of patients with ocular and neurological diseases (e.g., age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, Alzheimer, and ALS) through earlier and personalized therapy.
James L. and Elizabeth M. Vincent Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Research Interests: Ultrasonic and elasticity imaging, specifically nonlinear propagation, acoustic streaming and radiation force; the intentional generation of these phenomena for the purpose of tissue characterization; finite element modeling of normal and diseased tissue when exposed to ultrasound, and performing...
Associate Professor of the Practice in the Department of Biomedical Engineering
Research Interests: Dr. Palmeri's research interests include ultrasonic imaging, specifically using acoustic radiation force to characterize the mechanical properties of tissue, and finite element analysis of soft tissue response to impulsive radiation force excitation. Other research interests include ultrasonic...
Robert W. Carr, Jr., Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Research Interests: Innovating on optical strategies to peer into the biological landscape of thick tissues. Technologies being developed in her lab leverage principles of optical spectroscopy, optical sectioning microscopy, and molecular imaging. Her research group is developing and applying these optically based...
Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Research Interests: Dr. Wax's research interests include optical spectroscopy for early cancer detection, novel microscopy and interferometry techniques.
Associate Research Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Research Interests: Dr. Bass's research interests include the biomechanics of blast, blunt and ballistic trauma and pediatric trauma. His research focuses on injury risk from microscale to macroscale for the head, neck, thorax and extremities.
