Dr Alistair McEwan (IEEE M’98-SM’09) is Lecturer of Computer Engineering at The University of Sydney, Australia. He received his B.E.,B.Com and MPhil degrees in Economics and in Electrical Engineering in 1999 and 2001 respectively from The University of Sydney, Australia and his DPhil from Oxford University, UK in 2005. He did postdoctoral research at University College London, UK and then at Philips Research Labs in Germany as a Marie Curie Research Fellow. He most recently developed a portable imaging device based on Electrical Impedance Tomography Spectroscopy (EITS). The resulting system is currently being used in clinical trials of stroke and epilepsy monitoring in three London hospitals. He is currently working on a patented code division multiplexing (CDM) EITS method for simultaneous measurements with increased acquisition speed, number of electrodes and frequencies, leading to improved images and a wider range of applications. His research interests include medical instrumentation, integrated circuit design, and bio-inspired systems. He has more than 50 papers in these research areas and is an inventor on several patents. Dr McEwan is a member of the IEEE BioCAS Technical Committee of the CAS Society.
