Solomon Eisenberg, ScD is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. He also serves as Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs in the College of Engineering, a position he has held since 1998. He earned his SB, SM and ScD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He came to Boston University as an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering in 1983, and was jointly appointed in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1985. He was a Visiting Associate Professor in the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Science and Technology in 1997. He was the recipient of an NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award 1987-1993, and a 1990 Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching, one of Boston University’s highest teaching awards. His research is directed towards understanding the functional role played by electrically mediated interactions in connective tissues and membranes, and computational modeling of electric field distributions produced during electrical defibrillation and transcranial magnetic stimulation.
