I began my studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in Electrical Engineering (EE). There, I gained an interest in how the brain works and how electronic circuits could be used to model neurons and synapses. I conducted undergraduate research with Prof. Wei Lu where I studied neural inspired circuits using memristor devices. I continued this research in a 1 year internship at an advanced research organization called HRL Labs focusing on scaling memristor technology. I then went to University of California, San Diego to further my studies. Under the advisorship of Prof. Vikash Gilja, I earned my PhD in EE studying cortical surface potentials measured by sub-millimeter electrode arrays (micro-ECoG). After graduating, I joined a medical device startup Nēsos where I helped to develop a non-invasive neuromodulation device targeting the auricular branch of the vagus nerve. After 2 years at Nēsos, I joined Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, where I currently work.
