Jeff Ketterling, Ph.D.
  • Professor of Biomedical Engineering in Radiology

Dr. Jeff Ketterling is a professor of biomedical engineering in radiology at Weill Cornell Medicine. Jeff received his B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Washington in 1994, and his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Yale University in 1999. Jeff’s research focuses on the development and translation of ultrasound technology to basic science, and small-animal and clinical applications, particularly in the realm of high-frequency ultrasound. Recent projects include high-speed plane-wave ultrasound imaging for intracardiac flow patterns in mouse adult mice, blood flow in the front and back of the human eye, and activation of acoustic nanodrops for imaging microcirculation.

Jonathan Mamou, Ph.D.
  • Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering in Radiology

Dr. Mamou is an associate professor of electrical engineering in radiology at Weill Cornell Medicine. Jonathan earned a B.S. in electrical engineering from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications in Paris, France, in 2000. He earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 2005 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His fields of interest include theoretical aspects of ultrasonic scattering, ultrasonic medical imaging, ultrasound contrast agents, and biomedical image processing. Recent projects focus on quantitative ultrasound methods for ultrasound tissue characterization in oncology and ophthalmology, and ultra-high frequencies (>250 MHz) for quantitative acoustic microscopy, among others.
