Brief Biography:

Homer Nazeran holds BS, MS and PhD degrees in Electrical (Honors), Clinical and Biomedical Engineering from UT Austin, Case Western Reserve and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSWM) at Dallas/UTA, respectively. He has close to 3 decades of experience in industry and academia and has practiced and taught biomedical engineering in the Middle East, Europe, Australia and USA. In Australia, he co-founded the School of Engineering at the Flinders University of South Australia, introduced and established the electrical and electronics and biomedical engineering degree programs (1991 to 2001). He returned to the University of Texas at Arlington as a visiting professor in 1997 and 2001. He joined UTEP in 2002 to create and establish biomedical engineering degree programs at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests are in the areas of computer modeling of physiological systems, intelligent biomedical instrumentation and biomedical signal processing as applied to chronic health conditions and telemedicine. He has more than 150 journal and conference articles in his research areas published in IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and other flagship international conference proceedings. He is a reviewer for several national and international journals in his related fields including IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing, Biomedical Engineering Online and IEEE-EMBS Annual Conference Proceedings. His teaching interests are in electronics, biomedical instrumentation, physiological systems, and biomedical signal processing. He is also interested in development of novel teaching methods, lifelong learning and critical thinking habits in the classroom and interdisciplinary education based on application of nonlinear dynamics systems (complexity) theory. His research, teaching and professional activities have been supported by NIH, NSF, and DOE among others. Dr Nazeran is a senior member of the IEEE-EMBS and has been a member of the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM). He is a chartered professional engineer (CPENG-Biomed) in Australia. He is a proud member of the Board of Directors of the El Paso Diabetes Association (EPDA).
