Dr. Emam ElHak Abdel Fatah received his BS in Biomedical and Systems Engineering from Cairo University in 2002. After completing his undergraduate degree, Dr. Abdel Fatah began working for IBM in the development of 3D/4D ultrasound systems through which he gained in depth knowledge of ultrasound physics, computer vision, and visualization. He then went on to work for the IBM Websphere Business Integration department (WBI). At IBM, Dr. Abdel Fatah was part of the Websphere business modeler and workflow suite development team where he acquired valuable knowledge of business process management (BPM) and workflow. Dr. Abdel Fatah is also co-founder of BKI Technologies, a medical imaging company specializing in automatic karyotyping software. After his industrial experience, Dr. Abdel Fatah began his graduate studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. During his doctoral studies, he applied his experience in medical imaging, statistical modeling, computer vision, pattern recognition, and professional software in various research areas in biomedical engineering and anthropology. Dr. Abdel Fatah received his PhD in 2012. He has been a part of many consulting projects for different prosthetic and implant design companies, including the first gender knee and hip implants. Dr. Abdel Fatah’s research interests focus on process modeling and its application in pathway optimization; use of pervasive and social computing in medicine; medical image analysis; applications of pattern recognition and computer vision in machine learning; and mathematical and statistical modeling of anatomical structures and its application in both medicine and anthropology.
