Bin He

Bin He is a Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Medtronic-Bakken Chair, and Director of Institute for Engineering in Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Dr. He’s major research interests cover a broad spectrum in biomedical engineering, including neuroengineering, biomedical imaging, cardiovascular engineering, biomedical computing and bioinstrumentation. He has made significant original contributions to electrophysiological neuroimaging, multimodal functional neuroimaging, brain-computer interface, and cardiac electrophysiological tomography. Dr. He and his colleagues have pioneered the early development of anatomically constrained EEG source imaging and localization by means of the boundary element method, made significant contributions to novel methodologies of imaging spontaneous brain activity for localizing seizure sources and cognitive brain activity, and to the integrated EEG-fMRI neuroimaging methods. His lab has also made significant contributions to noninvasive EEG based brain-computer interface, and demonstrated for the first time the ability for human subjects to control flight of a virtual helicopter and real flying robot using noninvasive brain waves. His work has been featured by ABC News, Washington Post, Scientific American, Economist, and Fox News. Dr. He has published over 180 peer reviewed journal articles and delivered over 250 keynote, plenary and invited talks and seminars in international conferences and institutions worldwide. Dr. He served as the President of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (2009-2010), the Conference Chair of the 31st Annual International Conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (2009), and the Conference Chair of IEEE Life Sciences Grand Challenges Conference (2012). He has served on editorial boards or as an guest editor of IEEE Spectrum, IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, IEEE Access, Journal of Neural Engineering, Clinical Neurophysiology, Brain Topography, Critical Review of Biomedical Engineering, and Bioelectromagnetism. Dr. He is a Fellow of IEEE, International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering, American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, Institute of Physics, and International Society for Functional Source Imaging.
