Background and Current Work
Dr. Jeffrey Ketterling has been a member of Riverside Research’s Lizzi Center for Biomedical Engineering since 1999 and is currently the Associate Research Director of the group. He has served as the principal investigator for programs supported by the National Institutes of Health conducting research with high-frequency annular arrays for small animal and ophthalmic imaging, high-frequency acoustic contrast agents for microcirculation imaging in small animals and eyes, and hydrophone arrays for characterizing the instantaneous acoustic fields of lithotripters. Currently, Dr. Ketterling is involved with projects focused on phenotyping of mouse embryos using 3D data sets acquired with high-frequency ultrasound and on high-speed ultrasound plane-wave imaging of ophthalmic and mouse-embryo cardiovascular blood flow.
Education, Awards, and Recognition
He received a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Washington and a PhD in mechanical engineering from Yale University. Dr. Ketterling was the Technical Chair for the Biomedical Acoustics Committee of the Acoustical Society of America from 2008-2011 and is currently a member of the Medical Ultrasonics Technical Program Committee for the IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium. He is an Associate Editor for IEEE-TUFFC and Ultrasonic Imaging.
