Assistant Professor of Systems and Industrial Engineering
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Vignesh Subbian is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Systems and Industrial Engineering, member of the BIO5 Institute, and a Distinguished Fellow of the Center for University Education Scholarship (CUES) at the University of Arizona (UArizona). His professional areas of interest include medical informatics, healthcare systems engineering, and broadening participation in engineering and computing. Dr. Subbian leads the Computational Medicine and INformatics (COM-IN) Collaboratory, an engineering-driven, cross-disciplinary biomedical research and training hub at the UArizona. Funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), research efforts in the COM-IN Collaboratory leverage systems engineering and computational methods including machine learning for clinical and healthcare applications. Current patient populations of interest include cardiovascular diseases, traumatic brain injury, and respiratory disorders. Dr. Subbian is the principal investigator on an NSF Smart and Connected Health award to develop advanced computational models and informatics tools for critical care medicine.
Dr. Subbian’s educational research is focused on asset-based practices, ethical decision-making, and formation of identities in engineering. Currently, he co-leads the STEM in HSI working group and the Data Science Ambassadors Program at UArizona. He also leads the Collaborative for Engineering Education Research and Outreach (CEERO), a cross-college, interdisciplinary network of faculty, staff, and students to promote engineering education at all levels.
