Dr. Saiprasad Ravishankar received the B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, in 2008. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in 2010 and 2014 respectively, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After his Ph.D., Dr. Ravishankar was an Adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Coordinated Science Laboratory at the University of Illinois.
Dr. Wei’s research interests focus on injury biomechanics, forensic biomechanics, and computational biomechanics. Dr.
Mark Reimers is an associate professor in the neuroscience program where he integrates statistical analysis with biological theory while analyzing and interpreting the very large data sets now being generated in neuroscience, especially from the high-throughput technologies developed by the BRAIN initiative.
He graduated from the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia and previously held appointments at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Ripla Arora is an assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology within the College of Human Medicine and is the Chief of the Division of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology in the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering. Her research focuses on embryo uterine interactions at the time of implantation and uterine development.
Taeho Kim focuses on developing nanoscale inorganic materials as novel contrast agents and therapeutics for medical applications. He has harnessed his expertise in solution phase synthesis of inorganic nanoparticle (metal, metal oxide, semiconductor) and subsequent particle engineering to create tools for targeted drug delivery, cell tracking, and molecular therapeutics in various disease states (cancer, stroke, bacterial infection). His recent research lies in the development of nanoparticles for photoacoustic molecular imaging.
Aitor Aguirre is an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. He joined MSU from the University of California, San Diego, where he focused on large-scale metabolomics and functional genomics applied to human cardiac regeneration, development and disease states.
Bryan R. Smith is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering within the Engineering School, and a member of the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering. His lab blends engineering, chemistry, biology, physics, and medicine to develop new imaging and therapeutic approaches.
