University Distinguished Professor Jerzy Rozenblit is the Raymond J. Oglethorpe Endowed Chair of electrical and computer engineering and professor of surgery in the College of Medicine. From 2003 to 2011, he served as department head of ECE.
Professor Rozenblit established the Model-Based Design Laboratory with major projects – in design and analysis of complex, computer-based systems, hardware/software co-design, and simulation modeling – and funding from the National Science Foundation, US Army, Siemens, Infineon Technologies, Rockwell, McDonnell Douglas, and NASA. Currently, jointly with the Arizona Surgical Technology and Education Center, he is developing computer-guided training methods and systems for minimally invasive surgery.
Jerzy has been active in professional service in capacities ranging from editorship of Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), IEEE, and the Society for Computer Simulation transactions, to program and general chairmanship of major conferences, as well as participation in various university and departmental committees. Further, he co-authored several edited monographs and more than 200 publications.
He presently serves as director of the Life-Critical Computing Systems Initiative, a research enterprise intended to improve the reliability and safety of technology in health care and life-critical applications.
