Expertise: Magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, computational electromagnetics
Steven M. Wright (S’78–M’85-F’10) received the B.S. (highest honors), M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana. From 1984–1988, he was an Engineer/Scientist for magnetic resonance imaging at Saint Francis Medical Center, Peoria, IL, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Illinois. He joined the faculty at Texas A&M University, College Station, in 1988, where he established the Magnetic Resonance Systems Lab. He is the Wisenbaker Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and is group leader for biomedical imaging. During the summer and fall of 2000, he was a Visiting Professor at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. His research interests are in the development of instrumentation and techniques for magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy and in computational electromagnetics. Dr. Wright is a member of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society and is a Fellow of the IEEE, the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.
