ECE Lecture: Developing Electronic Circuits for Signal Processing of Biopotentials

Presenter: Richard Goldberg, Ph.D., Research Associate, University of North Carolina

Richard Goldberg obtained his BS in Electrical Engineering from Bucknell University in 1988 and his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University in 1994. He is a faculty member in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina and NC State University. He is also the Director of Undergraduate Studies for the Curriculum in Applied Sciences and Engineering at UNC, which is the home of the undergraduate BME program. Much of his teaching and research involves developing microcontroller-based systems and software for biomedical applications. He teaches a senior design class jointly at Duke and UNC in which students develop custom technology for local individuals with disabilities. The UNC side of this class includes additional projects to develop custom technology for clinics at UNC, such as the Kidney Center and Cardiothoracic Surgery Simulation Center. For several completed projects, he is working with local companies to conduct further research to develop them into commercial products.
