Bin He
Carnegie Mellon University, USA

in He is Trustee Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, and Electrical and Computer Engineering (by courtesy), and director of NIH Neural Interfacing Training Program at Carnegie Mellon University. He served as department head of biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University from 2018-2021, during which the department observed substantial improvement in research expenditure and expansion of PhD program, and increased national USNWR graduate program ranking from 26th to 17th. He was Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Medtronic-Bakken Chair for Engineering in Medicine, and served from 2008-2017 as the founding director of Center for Neuroengineering, and from 2012-2017 as director of Institute for Engineering in Medicine, at the University of Minnesota. Dr. He’s research interests cover a broad spectrum in biomedical engineering, including neuroengineering, biomedical imaging, biomedical computation, and bioinstrumentation. He has made pioneering research contributions to electrophysiological source imaging, establishing EEG source imaging as a functional dynamic neuroimaging modality from noninvasive EEG recordings. His lab demonstrated, for the first time in the field, the capability for humans to control the flight of a drone and control the movement of a robotic arm in 3D space, from only the “thought” decoded from noninvasive EEG recordings. His pioneering research was featured by NIH, NSF, Nature, BBC, CNN, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NBC, CBS, ABC, Scientific American, Economist, Fox News, among others. Dr. He’s contributions to biomedical engineering research have been recognized by a number of awards, including the IEEE Biomedical Engineering Award, the IEEE EMBS William J. Morlock Award, the IEEE EMBS Academic Career Achievements Award, the AHA Established Investigator Award, and NSF CAREER Award.

Dr. He has published over 290 peer reviewed articles in core international journals with an h-index of 79 according to Google Scholar. He has delivered over 300 keynote, plenary and invited talks and seminars in international conferences and institutions worldwide. He is the sole editor of textbook “Neural Engineering” published in 2005, 2013 and 2020. He was a past president of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) (2009-2010), the past chair of the International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering (IAMBE) (2018-2021), the conference chair of the 31st Annual International Conference of IEEE EMBS (2009), and co-chair of Scientific Committee of World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering (2012). He also previously served as chair of Publications Committee of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). Dr. He is a Fellow of IAMBE, IEEE, AIMBE, and Biomedical Engineering Society.
