Erin M. Buckley, PhD, Assistant Professor, Emory University/Georgia Tech Dept. of Biomedical Engineering, Emory University Department of Pediatrics

Dr. Buckley received her PhD in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011 under the supervision of Dr. Arjun Yodh.  She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Neurology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with Dr. Daniel Licht, followed by a second post-doc at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Department of Radiology with Maria Angela Franceschini, funded by the MGH Fund for Medical Discovery.   Her research has focused on the use of two complementary, non-invasive optical techniques, namely diffuse correlation spectroscopy and near-infrared spectroscopy, for quantification of cerebral blood flow, oxygenation, blood volume, and oxygen metabolism. In addition to developing and validating these techniques, her main goal has been to investigate unique clinical applications in pediatric cohorts using both clinical subjects as well as animal models.
