Short Biography

Dr. Doyley received his BSc (Honors) in Applied Physics from Brunel University (UK). He then earned his Doctorate in Medical Physics from the University of London. Dr. Doyley’s research interests include Cardiovascular Imaging, Breast Cancer Imaging, Ultrasound Beamforming, Contrast-enhanced Ultrasound Imaging, Ultrasound Elastography, Magnetic Resonance Elastography, and Pancreatic Cancer Imaging. Dr. Doyley serves as associate editor for several scientific journals including the Journal of Medical Imaging (JMI), IEEE Transaction on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control (UFFC), and Nature Scientific Reports. He is also on the International Advisory Board of Physics in Medicine and Biology and a member of the technical program committee of the IEEE UFFC symposium. Dr. Doyley teaches an introductory course in analog and digital communication systems (ECE 242) at the undergraduate level, and digital image processing (ECE 447) at the graduate level. Dr. Doyley has written several scientific articles and book chapters.
