“Light: A Powerful Tool for Brain Monitoring”

Erin Buckley, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Department of Biomedical Engineering
Department of Pediatrics
Emory University/Georgia Tech

This talk will provide an overview of diffuse optical spectroscopies used to non-invasively measure cerebral blood flow, oxygen metabolism, oxygen saturation, and blood volume. Further it will highlight how quantification of these parameters can provide insight into hypoxic-ischemic injury and efficacy of therapeutic strategies when applied in infants and children at high risk of brain injury.

Erin Buckley is an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory University/Georgia Tech and the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University. She received her Ph.D. in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011; followed by postdoctoral fellowships at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and at Massachusetts General Hospital.
