Ömer Oralkan

Dr. Oralkan joined the faculty at the North Carolina State University in January 2012. His research interests are at the interface of electrical engineering and the life sciences, particularly on using integrated circuits and underlying technologies to implement medical devices and supporting systems for diagnostics and therapy. More specifically, his current research focuses on developing devices and systems for ultrasound imaging, photoacoustic imaging, image-guided therapy, biological and chemical sensing, and ultrasound neural stimulation.

Prior to joining NC State, he was a Research Associateiate (2004-2007) and then a Senior Research Associateiate (2007-2011) in the E. L. Ginzton Laboratory at Stanford University, where he worked on capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers. He also served as an Adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Santa Clara University, CA (2009-2011).


2004 - Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, CA
1997 - M.S. in Electrical Engineering, Clemson University, SC
1995 - B.S. in Electrical Engineering, Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey
