Appointments, honors and activities
• Faculty and staff honors:
- Eugenio Culurciello, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at Purdue University, has authored a book entitled "Biomedical Circuits and Systems," a field that requires an interdisciplinary background ranging from electrical engineering to biology and neuroscience. His research group in Purdue's Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering currently specializes in replicating human visual capabilities in robotic vision systems. The book is written to help build the foundation for researchers, engineers and students to further develop their interest and knowledge in the field of biomedical instrumentation and provide an overview of various biosensors by introducing fundamental building blocks for integrated biomedical systems. Information about the book is available at http://www.lulu.com/shop/eugenio-culurciello-and-wei-tang-and-evan-joon-hyuk-park-and-brian-goldstein/biomedical-circuits-and-systems/hardcover/product-21196906.html- Nathan Mosier, an associate professor of agricultural and biological engineering, is among 73 of the nation's most innovative, young engineering educators selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering's fifth Frontiers of Engineering Education symposium. Faculty members who are developing and implementing innovative educational approaches in a variety of engineering disciplines will come together Oct. 27-30 in Irvine, Calif., to share ideas and learn from research and best practice in education. They were nominated by fellow engineers or deans and chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants.
