Resonant Cavity Imaging Biosensor

Biography

Michael Ruane received the B.E.E. degree from Villanova University, Villanova, PA, in 1969 and the S.M.E.E. degree and the Ph.D. degree in in systems engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 1973 and 1980, respectively.

He is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering with Boston University, Boston, MA. Previously, he spent two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Sierra Leone and was a Staff Member of the MIT Energy Laboratory from 1973 to 1977. He joined Boston University in 1980 and is a Member of the Boston University Photonics Center.

Dr. Ruane is a registered professional engineer (electrical).
