Omer Inan has been named a 2023 Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society (EMBS). Inan is Professor and the Linda J. and Mark C. Smith Chair in Bioscience and Bioengineering at the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), and holds an adjunct faculty appointment in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Through the EMBS Distinguished Lecturers Program, top-quality speakers can connect directly with EMBS Chapters, Student Branch Chapters and Student Clubs Programs. Each year, the program’s committee chooses leading experts from around the world as Distinguished Lecturers to keep members informed about the latest trends and developments in biomedical engineering.

Inan is the director of the Inan Research Lab, where he and his research team work on non-invasive physiological sensing and modulation for four different application areas: unobtrusive cardiovascular monitoring, wearable biomechanics, non-invasive neuromodulation of stress, and pediatric bioengineering.

He is a member of the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience and a program faculty member for Tech’ Interdisciplinary Bioengineering Graduate Program. Some of Inan’s most recent honors include an Academy Award for Technical Achievement from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (The Oscars), the Georgia Tech Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Advisor Award, and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award. Inan is an elected fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
