Faculty Expert Profile

Muyinatu “Bisi” Bell

  • John C. Malone Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Computer Science


  • Whiting School of Engineering

Muyinatu A. Lediju Bell (informally known as "Bisi") leads a research program that integrates optics, acoustics, robotics, electronics, and mechanics, as well as signal processing and medical device design, to engineer and deploy innovative biomedical imaging systems that improve patient care.

She recently discovered a way to achieve clear medical imaging for patients of any skin tone, overcoming longstanding issues with getting clear images for patients with darker skin.

As the director of the Photoacoustic and Ultrasonic Systems Engineering (PULSE) Lab, Bell develops theories, models, and simulations to improve ultrasonic and photoacoustic image quality. She also designs and builds novel light delivery systems for photoacoustic imaging and incorporates medical robots to improve operator maneuverability and enable standardized procedures for more personalized medicine.
