Ping Zhou is a Professor in University of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences (tentative name), Qingdao, China. As the first professor joining this university still in preparation, he helps plan and found its biomedical/rehabilitation engineering programs. Before current position he was a professor in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). Before joining UTHealth, he spent most time in Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Northwestern University, progressively as PhD student, postdoctoral fellow, research assistant professor, and research associate professor. His research interests include biomedical signal processing (particularly EMG), motor unit analysis, electrodiagnosis of neuromuscular diseases, myoelectric prosthesis control, and neurorehabilitation robotics. He has published over 140 peer-reviewed journal articles. He serves as Associate Editor for IEEE-TBME, IEEE-TNSRE, Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation, Frontiers in Neurology, BioMed Research International, and Journal of Healthcare Engineering.
