Ian Kremenic, MEng

Research Associate/Engineer

Ian Kremenic received his Bachelor’s [1992] and Master’s [1994] Degrees in Electrical Engineering, with a minor in Biomedical Engineering from The Cooper Union in New York City. His Master’s Thesis dealt with the analysis of EMG signals recorded during fatiguing contractions using the wavelet transform. Since 1994, Ian has been a member of the multidisciplinary research team at NISMAT, working as a Research Associate and Network Administrator.

His expertise is in the application of engineering principles to problems in biomedicine, especially with regards to signal processing techniques. Among his research interests and areas in which he has published are analysis of human motion, biomechanical testing of implants and surgical techniques, magnetic stimulation of muscle and evaluation of fatigue.

Ian is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the Biomedical Engineering Society and the American College of Sports Medicine, and is a reviewer for Clinical Biomechanics, Clinical Neurophysiology, The American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise. Since 2002, he has been an Adjunct Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at The Cooper Union.

Ian is an avid downhill skier, and has recently taken to telemarking. He is interested in music production and technology, and is an extremely poor player of the Chapman Stick, a 12-stringed, guitar-like instrument.
