Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Joseph V. Rispoli received B.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering from the University of Virginia in 2002 and the Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2015. Before his graduate studies, Dr. Rispoli was a development engineer at Dell, where he focused on high-speed digital design for multiprocessor server motherboards.
Dr. Rispoli’s research focuses on novel hardware and methodology for magnetic resonance imaging. He is particularly interested in anatomically-tailored radiofrequency coil design for high-field studies, in vivo spectroscopy of multiple NMR-active nuclei, and electromagnetic modeling for patient safety and design evaluation. During his doctoral program he developed over 20 RF coils for high-field human studies at 7 tesla, investigating biomarkers of breast cancer using proton and carbon-13 spectroscopy.
