Engineering Alumnus Lingala Joins UI Biomedical Engineering Department

Engineering alumnus Sajan Goud Lingala (PhD 2013 Biomedical Engineering) is joining the College of Engineering as assistant professor of biomedical engineering, effective June 1, 2018.

Lingala ( comes to the UI from Siemens Healthineers, Princeton, NJ, where he was senior research scientist.  There he was responsible for researching and developing novel next generation automated data-driven magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods (eg. sparsity, low-rank, deep learning, artificial intelligence based methods).  He holds a US patent in "unifying reconstruction and motion estimation in first pass cardiac perfusion imaging Siemens."

As a doctoral student at Iowa, Lingala's studies were in advanced image reconstruction algorithms for accelerated dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
