Dr. Fang teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in both Bioengineering and Electrical Engineering & Computer Engineering departments at Northeastern University.
Presents the foundations of modern medical imaging, including imaging principles, imaging mathematics, imaging physics, and image-generation techniques. Includes X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
Investigates the principles of biology and engineering underlying the design and use of biomedical instrumentation. Topics include design of a broad range of instrumentation and monitoring devices, sensors, and integrated systems.
Teaches basic circuit theories and analysis techniques - the Ohm's law, KCL, KVL, node-voltage, mesh-current, opamps, RC, RL, AC networks, amplifiers and filters - through a combination of lectures, hands-on labs and computer simulations. Prepares a bioengineering undergraduate student to take on practical tasks such as building and debugging circuits, designing amplifiers and filters etc.
(Sharing lectures with Profs. Mark Niedre, Bryan Spring and Charles Dimarzio)
Covers biomedical optics and discusses the theory and practice of biological and medical applications of lasers. Topics covered include fundamentals of light propagation in biological tissues, light-matter interactions such as elastic and inelastic scattering; fluorescence and phosphorescence; diagnostic imaging techniques such as confocal fluorescence microscopy, diffuse optical tomography, and optical coherence tomography; and therapeutic interventional techniques, including photodynamic therapy, laser thermal therapies, and fluorescence-guided surgeries.
