Rehman Ali received the B.S. degree in biomedical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2016. He is currently an NDSEG fellow, completing a M.S. in Computational & Mathematical Engineering and pursuing a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Stanford. His research interests include signal processing, inverse problems, computational modeling of acoustics, and real-time beamforming algorithms. His current research is developing accurate and spatially resolved speed-of-sound imaging in tissue based on phase aberration correction, spatial coherence, and computed tomography
