Assoc Prof Manojit Pramanik
Associate Professor, School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering
Assistant Chair (Academic), School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering (SCBE)
|Associate Professor Manojit Pramanik received his Ph.D. degree (2010) in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, USA under the tutelage of Dr. Lihong Wang. He joined the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering (SCBE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore in January 2014. He obtained his masters (M.Tech.) degree from Department of Instrumentation at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India in 2004. He did his undergraduate (B.Tech) from the Department of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, India in 2002. Prior to joining NTU he served as Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India for one and half years. His industry experiences include two years at General Electric Global Research (GRC), Bangalore, India and one year at Philips Medical System, Bangalore, India. He is the recipient of Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India Young Scientist Research Award 2013. His research interest include development of photoacoustic and thermoacoustic imaging systems, image reconstruction methods, machine learning for photoacoustic imaging, clinical application areas such as breast cancer imaging, molecular imaging, contrast agent development, monte-carlo simulation for light transport in biological tissue etc. He has more than 200 international journal and conference publications and presentations. He serves as the Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Biomedical Optics, Photoacoustics. He is a Senior Member of SPIE. Dr. Pramanik is also the inaugural Biodesign Faculty Fellow offered by the Singapore Biodesign Programme.|
