Pamela Bhatti

Pamela Bhatti has been appointed as the editor-in-chief of the IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine (J-TEHM) for a three-year term, beginning January 1, 2019. The IEEE J-TEHM is a peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journal and community forum that bridges the engineering and clinical worlds. 

Bhatti joined the faculty of the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in 2007, where she is currently an associate professor and leads the Translational Biosystems Research Laboratory. Her research interests are in the areas of biomedical sensors and subsystems, cochlear and vestibular neural prostheses, and improving imaging of cardiac vasculature through cardiac inertial sensing combined with machine learning algorithms.

Bhatti serves as the Georgia Tech co-director for the KL2 and TL1 training programs that are sponsored by the Georgia Clinical and Translational Science Alliance (CTSA) and supported by the National Institutes of Health, National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). Her mission is to train the next generation of clinical researchers to impact health in Georgia and beyond.

In 2016, Bhatti co-founded Camerad Technologies, a company dedicated to improving throughput and quality in radiology imaging. She is also an entrepreneurship educator and coach with the I-Corps@NCATS program, as well as for the Georgia Tech CREATE-X and InVenture Prize programs.

Bhatti is a previous recipient of an NSF CAREER Award, which she used to focus on vestibular rehabilitation, and she also received the Georgia Tech Class of 1934 Outstanding Interdisciplinary Activities Award in 2017.
