Dr. Pamela Bhatti received a B.S. in Engineering Science (Bioengineering) from the University of California, Berkeley in 1989, an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington in 1993, and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2006 with an emphasis on Micro-electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS). Before completing her Ph.D., she researched the detection of breast cancer with ultrasound imaging at the University of Michigan's Department of Radiology (1997-1999). Her industry experience includes embedded systems software development at Microware Corporation, Des Moines, IA (1996-1997), local operating network applications development and customer support at Motorola Semiconductor in Austin, TX (1994-1995), and research and fabrication of controlled-release drug delivery systems at Alza Corporation in Palo Alto, CA (1986-1990). Pamela received the NSF CAREER Award in 2011. Committed to translating technology to the clinical setting, she is a KL2 Scholar with the Atlanta Clinical and Translations Sciences Institute, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Rehabilitative Medicine with the Emory School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.
