Please join us in welcoming Prof. Muyinatu A. Lediju Bell as our newest HEMI Fellow! She is an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Prof. Bell is the director of Photoacoustic and Ultrasonic Systems Engineering Lab (PULSE), an interdisciplinary research program that integrates optics, acoustics, robotics, electronics, and mechanics, as well as signal processing and medical device design, to significantly improve the standard of patient care. The group works to develop theories, models, and simulations to investigate advanced beam forming techniques for improving ultrasonic and photoacoustic image quality. PULSE also works to design and build novel light delivery systems for photoacoustic imaging and incorporate medical robots to improve operator maneuverability and enable standardized procedures for more personalized medicine. Our technologies are then interfaced with real patients to facilitate clinical translation of the devices, methods, and tools developed in our lab.
Prof. Bell received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University and her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (BME minor) from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
