Jonathan Mamou is the research manager of the Frederic L. Lizzi Center for Biomedical Engineering at Riverside Research. The Lizzi Center focuses on the development of novel ultrasound and optical methods for biomedical applications and Jonathan has served as principal investigator and co-investigator of several NIH-funded projects. One of his current projects uses very-high-frequency ultrasound to characterize human lymph nodes excised from cancer patients.

Jonathan graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications in Paris, France, in July 2000. At ECE ILLINOIS, his graduate work was performed under Professor William D. O’Brien Jr., and focused on developing 3-D acoustical models of tumors to improve ultrasound-based approaches for tissue characterization.

His research interests include theoretical aspects of ultrasonic scattering, ultrasonic medical imaging, ultrasound contrast agents, and biomedical image processing. With Associate Professor Michael L. Oelze, Jonathan is co-editor of the bookQuantitative Ultrasound in Soft Tissues, published by Springer in 2013. Jonathan is a Fellow of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, a Senior Member of IEEE, and a Member of the Acoustical Society of America.
