"My teaching is focused on providing students with the practical experience needed to engage in research and design that spans the breadth of BME."Timothy E. Allen, Associate Professor
Dr. Timothy E. Allen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia. He received a B.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Bioengineering at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Allen's teaching activities include coordinating the undergraduate teaching labs and the Capstone Design sequence in the BME department at the University of Virginia, and his research interests are in the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics. He is also interested in evaluating the pedagogical approaches optimal for teaching lab concepts and skills, computational modeling approaches, and professionalism within design classes. He is active within the Biomedical Engineering Division of the American Society for Engineering Education and previously served on the executive committee of this division (Program Chair 2011, Division Chair 2012, & Nominating Committee Chair 2013). Dr. Allen serves on the BMES Education Committee. He is also the PI on a newly renewed NSF REU site focused on multi-scale systems bioengineering and biomedical data sciences, a collaboration involving 12 faculty in SEAS, SOM, SDS, and CLAS at U.Va., as well as six partner institutions in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
