Director: Meltem Izzetoglu, PhD
Dr. Izzetoglu earned her doctorate in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Drexel University, where she served as an associate research professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering. She was also an adjunct faculty member at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY, and in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rowan University in Glasboro, NJ.
Dr. Izzetoglu has served as the signal processing engineer of an interdisciplinary engineering and scientific team that designed and developed next generation, low cost, portable, wireless fNIRS designs, dynamic and realistic testing environments and fNIRS analysis algorithms that can be used in brain activity monitoring in healthy and diseased populations.
Collaborating with scientists, researchers, engineers, neuroscientists, psychologists, educators, clinicians, and nurses regionally, nationally and internationally, Dr. Izzetoglu has helped build bridges between experts in brain research to work together in finding solutions to unmet needs, research or clinical problems.
