Homer Nazeran
Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

Homer Nazeran holds BS, MS and PhD degrees in Electrical (Honors), Clinical and Biomedical Engineering from UT Austin, Case Western Reserve and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSWM) at Dallas/UTA, respectively. He has close to 3 decades of experience in industry and academia and has practiced and taught biomedical engineering in the Middle East, Europe, Australia and USA. In Australia, he co-founded the School of Engineering at the Flinders University of South Australia, introduced and established the electrical and electronics and biomedical engineering degree programs (1991 to 2001). He returned to the University of Texas at Arlington as a visiting professor in 1997 and 2001. He joined UTEP in 2002 to create and establish biomedical engineering degree programs at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests are in the areas of computer modeling of physiological systems, intelligent biomedical instrumentation and biomedical signal processing as applied to chronic health conditions and telemedicine. He has more than 150 journal and conference articles in his research areas published in IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and other flagship international conference proceedings. He is a reviewer for several national and international journals in his related fields including IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing, Biomedical Engineering Online and others. His teaching interests are in electronics, biomedical instrumentation, physiological systems, and biomedical signal processing. He is also interested in development of novel teaching methods, lifelong learning and critical thinking habits in the classroom and interdisciplinary education based on application of nonlinear dynamics systems (complexity) theory. His research, teaching and professional activities have been supported by NIH, NSF, and DOE among others.

In summary his research is focused on applying advanced biomedical instrumentation, signal processing and physiological modeling to target improvements in diagnosis and treatment of chronic conditions (such as asthma, copd, diabetes, obesity, stress, and cardiac conditions among others). His most recent research emphasis is in development of mHeath technologies.
