Congratulations to Dr. Stephen McAleavey (BME), who was promoted from assistant professor to associate professor with tenure. Professor McAleavey has been with the University of Rochester since 1996, when he worked as a graduate research associate with Professor Kevin Parker in Electrical Engineering. He became assistant professor with the Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2004.
Dr. McAleavey's area of research expertise centers on developing novel ultrasound imaging techniques based on shear waves. His research has led to the development of three patents: Method for Image Reconstruction from Shear Wave Modulated Ultrasound Echo Data; Shear Modulus Estimation by Application of Spatially Modulated Impulsive Acoustic Radiation Force; and Methods, Systems, and Computer Program Products for Imaging using Virtual Extended Shear Wave Sources (in conjunction with GE Trahey, KR Nightingale, and RW Nightingale).
