L. D. Iasemidis received the Diploma in electrical and electronics engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 1982, M.S. in Physics, M.S. and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich in 1985, 1986, and 1991, respectively. Dr. Iasemidis is currently an Associate Professor of Bioengineering at the Arizona State University, Tempe, Ariz, and Director and Founder of the ASU Brain Dynamics Laboratory. Dr. Iasemidis is recognized as an expert in dynamics of epileptic seizures, and his research and publications have stimulated an international interest in the prediction and control of epileptic seizures, and understanding of the mechanisms of epileptogenesis. He is currently on the Editorial Board of Epilepsia and IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, and is a Reviewer of NIH. He has reviewed articles for more than 10 scientific journals. His research interests are in the areas of biomedical and genomic 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 the CNS, neuroplasticity, rehabilitation, and neuroprosthesis. Dr. Iasemidis research has been funded by NIH, VA, DARPA and the Whitaker Foundation.
