Thou Shalt Not Touch - Nonobtrusive and Noncontact Monitoring Techniques for Medical Applications

In partnership with the U-M Department of Computational Medicine & Bioinformatics, and the Michigan Integrated Center for Health Analytics & Medical Prediction, we're excited to welcome Steffen Leonhardt, MD, PhD, to Michigan!

Steffen Leonhardt holds a M.S. from SUNY at Buffalo, NY, a Ph.D. in Control Engineering from TU Darmstadt, Germany, and a M.D. from Goethe Unversity, Frankfurt, Germany.  After working as a R&D Manager for Dräger Medical AG&Co KGaA, Lübeck, Germany, he was recruited as a full professor in biomedical engineering by RWTH Aachen University in 2003 and has since then been holding the Philips endowed Chair of Medical Information Technology. His research interests include closed loop control and automation in medicine, bioimpedance, unobtrusive sensing and cyber medical systems. His publication record can be found here.

Among other duties, Steffen serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing, the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics and the journal Biomedical Engineering / Biomedizinische Technik.

He currently is the acting president of International Society of Bioelectromagnetism and a Fellow of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts, Düsseldorf, Germany.
