Om forfatteren

Sergey Makarov is a full professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, having taught a wide variety of graduate and undergraduate classes and established a very active record of academic and research advising. His formal educational background is in applied mathematics and electromagnetics but since moving to WPI in 1998, his research field has been shifted to analysis and design with virtual human models including image segmentation, surface extraction, and CAD model generation. Dr. Makarov has published about 150 conference and journal papers, three books, and he holds active 6 patents with four other pending. He has received numerous departmental and institute-wide awards for his teaching, advising, and service and is a Senior Member of the IEEE, participating in or chairing committees related to electromagnetic safety and education. In 2009, Dr. Makarov founded NEVA Electromagnetics, LLC, serving customers in need of multi-tissue virtual human models generated from biomedical image datasets for electromagnetic and mechanical simulation studies, body-worn antenna designs, and biomedical sensor designs for many applications. Dr. Makarov is also a member of the Research Staff at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, conducting investigative studies in non-invasive brain stimulation technologies that utilize many of his computational human phantoms.





Gregory Noetscher is a senior research electrical engineer with the US Army at the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center in Natick, MA, having worked on and coordinated a variety of experimental and simulation projects related to precision guided cargo airdrop since 2003. His research interests since 2009 have also included the construction and application of highly non-homogeneous human body phantoms. Dr. Noetscher also serves as a Research Scientist at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, participating and directing research on human phantom creation and application. He is a member of the IEEE and has published over 50 conference and journal articles, one textbook, and holds two active patents with three pending.
