Shubo Zhang received the B.S. degree from department of Automatic Control at Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing,China, in 2007 ,and the M.E. degree in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ, USA , in 2009. He is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Stevens Institute of Technology. His research interest is control design for Micro/Nano-robots in Biomedical Applications.
Dr. Hong Man joined the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stevens in January 2000. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in December 1999. Dr. Man is currently an associate professor in the department of ECE. He is serving as the director of the undergraduate Computer Engineering program, and the director of the Visual Information Environment Laboratory at Stevens. His research interests have been in image and video processing, medical imaging, data analysis and pattern recognition. He has authored or co-authored more than 60 technical journal and conference papers on these topics. He is a senior member of IEEE and member of ASEE.
Dr. Ritter received his B.Ch.E. degree from the City College of New York, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Ch.E. from the University of Rochester. Before returning for his Ph.D. degree he had over 10 years of industrial experience in the aerospace industry for the US Navy and United Aircraft in solid rocket propellant development and as a development engineer for the Mixing Equipment Company and the DuPont Co. His first academic appointment was at Stevens Institute of Technology in the department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering where he did research on solar energy storage and conversion and optimal control of chemical processes. He taught courses in transport phenomena and process control. While at Stevens he met Francis Chinard, MD from UMD-New Jersey Medical School and started collaborative research in pulmonary transport and metabolism in-vivo. This led to a full time position in Dr. Chinard’s lab in the department of Medicine at NJMS. After a few years he was recruited to the department of Physiology where he spent the next 20 years teaching Cardiovascular and Respiratory physiology, statistics for the life sciences and physical chemistry to Medical, Dental and Graduate students. His research areas were microcirculatory and cardio-respiratory physiology. He was course director of the medical physiology course for five years before returning to Stevens to start the Biomedical Engineering program. He was the PI or Co-PI on grants from NSF, NIH, AHA and New Jersey Commission on Science and Technology.
Dr. Ritter has mentored nine Ph.D. students in Physiology and Biomedical Engineering and over 40 Masters student’s in Biomedical Engineering.
He is the co-author of over 45 publications in peer reviewed journals and numerous abstracts and presentations at local, national and international conferences. He is the primary author of an undergraduate textbook in Biomedical Engineering.
His current research interests are in Systems Physiology, Rotary Protein Motors, The Failing Heart, and Biorobotics. He recently started a Biorobotics lab for research in Robotics and minimalyy invasive surgery with colaboration with surgeons at Hackensack University Medical Center (NJ).
