About

Marc Fuller, after receiving a Ph.D. with an emphasis on bioelectricity at the University of Michigan, has spent his career equally divided between academia and industry. He has worked for Bell Laboratories, Siemens Medical, Draeger Medical, and Philips Health Care.  He has had academic appointments at Worcester Polytech, U Mass Medical School, University of Utah Medical School, and now of course at Northeastern University. His interests have spanned a wide range of physiological subjects from neural coding to resuscitation. His experiences have led him to believe that the best way to learn is by doing. You will see that reflected in his classes where he has students use a design-oriented approach to help them understand how their academic knowledge is applicable to the real world.

In addition to teaching, Prof. Fuller has worked with the Northeastern student organization Engineering World Health. With students, he has worked in a hospital bioengineering laboratory in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He has also traveled to Ghana to help facilitate joint efforts between students here and at the University of Ghana to develop medical instrumentation for use in low-resource environments.
