501L Engineering Research Cntr
Professor Thomas M. Talavage received his BSCEE (1992) and MSEE (1993) from Purdue University, and his PhD (1998) from the Speech and Hearing Sciences program in the MIT-Harvard Division of Health Sciences & Technology. He is currently Professor and Head of the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Prior to coming to the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Talavage was a faculty member in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (1998-2020) and the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering (1999-2020) at Purdue University. While at Purdue, Dr. Talavage was Founding Co-Director of the Purdue MRI Facility (2007-2020) and served as the Lead PI for the Purdue University College of Engineering's Engineering Healthier Brains Preeminent Team (2015-2020). Dr. Talavage's primary area of research is the application of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to characterizing neural behavior and health, having conducted pioneering research in both the auditory neurosciences and in the study of brain injury subsequent to exposure to repetitive head acceleration events (rHAEs). Dr. Talavage's research has achieved national visibility through his testimony before Congress, a presentation before a regional meeting of the National Academy of Engineering, publication of a chapter in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology, and coverage by the national media (e.g., Sports Illustrated, Tech Nation with Moira Gunn, Frontline, HBO Real Sports, NOVA, The Economist, ESPN).
