The Georgia Tech provost’s office has selected Stanislav Emelianov to join the newest group of emerging leaders for a year-long development and training program.
Emelianov will join 15 associate and full professors across campus for intensive retreats and workshops as well as a 360-degree evaluation to help them develop their leadership skills.
“I have always wanted to become, practice, and grow as a servant leader,” said Emelianov, Joseph M. Pettit Chair and professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering. “The Emerging Leaders Program is a great professional fit for me. It will allow me to develop my leadership skills and also better understand the ideal next steps for my professional growth.”
Emelianov’s research focuses on diagnostic imaging and patient-specific, image-guided therapeutics. His lab develops pre-clinical to clinically viable all-in-one imaging solutions using ultrasound and lasers as well as contrast agents. Their work spans from the molecular scale to the full systems or structural level.
“We’re pleased to welcome the seventh cohort of the Emerging Leaders Program,” said Steven W. McLaughlin, Georgia Tech provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. “Supporting faculty as they pursue their leadership journey, the program is an investment in our faculty, our strategic plan goals, the Institute, and the Georgia Tech community as a whole.”
Emelianov joined the Coulter BME faculty in 2015 and also is a faculty member in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He said the Emerging Leaders Program will help him contribute to new levels of impact for Georgia Tech — and build up the next generation.
“Being a good leader is important to me, but so is being a good role model,” he said. “There have been so many influential people in my life who have been great leaders and role models and who have molded me into who I am.”
