Dr. Vivek Srinivasan will join the Biomedical Engineering Department faculty as an Assistant Professor, effective July 1, 2012.  He has a B.S. from Stanford University and a Ph.D. from MIT. Dr. Srinivasan has a particular focus on neural engineering and also works in biophotonics and imaging. His particular areas of interest include neurovascular coupling, neuroimaging, non-invasive optical methods for measuring retinal function, rapidly wavelength tunable lasers and swept source Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), high-speed spectrometers and light sources for ultrahigh resolution spectral / Fourier domain OCT, image segmentation and quantitative analysis, and applications of high-speed high-resolution OCT in biomedical imaging.
