Biography

Leon D. Iasemidis was born in Athens, Greece, and received the Diploma degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Athens, Greece. He subsequently earned the M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering, the M.S. degree in Physics and the Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Michigan (1991–1993), a Research Assistant Professor of electrical and computer engineering, neurology, and neuroscience at the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA, the Director of the clinical neurophysiology laboratory, neurology service, Malcolm Randall Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Gainesville, FL (1993–1997), and a tenured Associate Professor in biomedical engineering at the Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA. Since 2012, he has been the Rhodes Eminent Scholar Chair and Professor of biomedical engineering at the Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, LA, USA, the Founder and Director of the Brain Dynamics Laboratory (http://www.braindynamics.latech.edu), the Director of the multidisciplinary Center for Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Science (http://coes.latech.edu/cbers) at Louisiana Tech University, and a Professor Emeritus of the Arizona State University. He held an adjunct professorship in neurology (2009–2012) at Mayo Clinic Arizona, and currently holds adjunct professorships in neurology (2013) at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Shreveport, LA, and neurosurgery (2015) at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), Little Rock, AR, USA. His research interests include the areas of biomedical signal processing, complex systems theory and nonlinear dynamics, neurophysiology, monitoring and analysis of the electrical and magnetic activity of the brain in epilepsy and other brain dynamical disorders, intervention and control of CNS. His research has been highlighted in multiple forums, including the New York Times, Discover magazine, the Teaching Company, and the American Society for the Advancement of Science. He is internationally recognized as an expert in nonlinear dynamics, the detection, prediction and control of crises in complex coupled systems, is one of the founders of the field of seizure prediction and of two companies in this area. His research and more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, patents, interdisciplinary conference organizations, presentations, and invited talks have stimulated an international interest in the prediction and control of epileptic seizures and understanding of the mechanisms of epileptogenesis. His research has been funded by National Institute of Health, VA, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, National Science Foundation, DoD, the Whitaker Foundation, the Epilepsy Foundation of America, CURE, the Science Foundation of Arizona, and medical device industry. Prof. Iasemidis is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineers (AIMBE) and a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). He has served on the editorial board of Epilepsia, the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering and the International Journal of Neural Systems, and currently is an Associate Editor of the Annals of Biomedical Engineering and a member of the editorial board of the journal of Epilepsy Research. He is a reviewer for the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and several other national and international funding agencies and foundations.
