BingBing Wu, Ph.D., is an Assistant professor in Dept. of Technological Entrepreneurship & Innovation Management at Arizona State University. He received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the Huazhong University of Science & Technology in 1994, an M.S. degree in Neurobiology in 1997 from the Shanghai Institute of Physiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology in 2004 from the University of Louisville. Before coming to Arizona State, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Robotics Institute and Dept. of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University. His research studies multimodal human-machine interactions in the applied context of medical and industrial settings. He has specific interests in developing/optimizing visualization and navigation technology such as for image-guided surgeries, surgical trainers, and new surgical tools. His current work includes the development and evaluation of visual and haptic rendering techniques and the investigation of multisensory perception of soft tissue.
