Dr. Emad Ebbini is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. His research interests are in signal and array processing with applications to medical ultrasound. He published extensively on ultrasound array systems and their dual use in imaging and therapy in the noninvasive treatment of cancer, peripheral vascular diseases, and neurological disorders. His laboratory pioneered the concept of dual-mode ultrasound array systems, which is currently being used under license for the treatment of atherosclerosis in human patients. Dr. Ebbini is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) for his work on dual mode ultrasound and temperature imaging. He served on the editorial boards of several IEEE journals and as a Guest Editor for three special issues on therapeutic ultrasound. He served as a Chair of the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (2012 – 2015) and chaired its annual meeting in 2008. Dr. Ebbini’s teaching interests are in signal and image processing, systems, and electronics. Dr. Ebbini has recently led the effort to redesign the electrical and computer engineering curriculum at the University of Minnesota, which started in 2019. The new curriculum included elements of hybrid learning that proved helpful during the remote learning period between March 2020 and May 2021. In his free time, Dr. Ebbini likes to read historical fiction, hike, and play word puzzles.
