Research Interests

Elizabeth Logsdon is an associate teaching professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. She is the director of undergraduate studies and the director of the BME Design Studio, a facility that supports all design courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs.

As director of undergraduate studies for BME, Logsdon supports programmatic curricular innovation and development. She oversees undergraduate advising and the objectives connecting to the student experience. This includes orientations, student trajectories through the BME curriculum, and personalized advising–matching students to faculty advisors based on interests and specialty training.

Logsdon teaches the engineering design process in the cornerstone undergraduate BME Design Team Program, a suite of eight courses that train student leaders and teams in user-centered design from identifying needs to validating solutions. She connects design resources, curriculum and initiatives across the BME undergraduate program.

Logsdon is also the director of the Sardella Engineering Design Center, a schoolwide engineering design center that will serve all departments and educational centers and lead the annual JHU Design Day event. The mission of the center includes both elevating current project-based and engineering design curricula in each WSE department, and also inspiring new models for multidisciplinary learning and engagement. When completed the Center will be the central location at Homewood for undergraduate engineering design and project-based learning
