New Ultrasonic Technologies for Endoscopic Surgery
Dr. Jeremy Brown, Dalhousie University, Canada


Dr. Jeremy Brown was born in London Ontario Canada in 1978. He received his B.Sc.Eng. in Engineering Physics in 2001, and his Ph.D. in applied physics in 2005. Both from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Between March 2006 and January 2008, Dr. Brown completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In February 2008, Dr. Brown began a faculty position in Biomedical Engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and has since been cross appointed to the department of Electrical Engineering. In 2009, he was also appointed as an affiliated scientist at Nova Scotia Health Authority in the department of Surgery. Dr. Brown’s principal research interests include piezoelectric transducer design, fabrication and characterization for both ultrasonic imaging and therapeutic applications. This includes all of the associated electronic hardware required to drive capture and process the ultrasonic signals. His research in high-frequency ultrasound is focused on the development of very high resolution micro-fabricated imaging endoscopes for guided surgical applications. His research in low frequency ultrasound is focused on developing miniature highly focused therapeutic transducers for precision tissue ablation.
