Bio

Kurtulus Izzetoglu gained professional software development and medical imaging experience as a member of consulting companies in the United States and the Netherlands, respectively. In these positions, he worked as a senior analyst, as well as a software and analytical applications developer. His experiences include the development of professional medical imaging software packages, implementation of quantitative analysis, and imaging techniques. Subsequent to five years of industrial experience, he joined the functional optical imaging research team at Drexel University, where he currently serves as a project engineer. His technical management responsibilities include development of the Cognitive Workload Assessment Testing and Analysis Platform and signal processing and experimental protocol design and implementation. He received PhD in biomedical engineering from Drexel University in 2008, and his MS in electrical and electronics engineering from Middle East Technical University in 1995. His current research projects mainly focus on development of optical sensors, novel algorithms and techniques to deploy the optical brain imaging system (fNIR) for various application areas, such as human performance assessment (cognitive workload, expertise development), depth of anesthesia monitor, etc.
