Profile Summary

Jeff Siewerdsen is Vice-Chair and John C. Malone Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. He is also Co-Director of the Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation and holds cross-appointment in Computer Science, Radiology, Neurosurgery, and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. He obtained his PhD in Physics at the University of Michigan (1998), after which he was a Research Scientist at William Beaumont Hospital (1998-2002) and then a Senior Scientist at the Ontario Cancer Institute / University of Toronto (2002-2009). His main interests are in the physics of medical imaging, digital x-ray and cone-beam CT systems for diagnostic and image-guided procedures, and multi-modality image registration and analytics. His current and previous professional activities include service to the AAPM (Science Council, Board of Directors, and Scientific Program Director), the SPIE (Program Committees for Physics of Medical Imaging and Image-Guided Procedures), the RSNA (Program Committee Liaison), and the APS (Program Director and Committee Member for the Topic Group on Medical Physics, GMED). He is Fellow of the AAPM (FAAPM) and AIMBE (FAIMBE).
