I develop brain-machine interfaces (BMIs), which are electronic systems that interface with the brain, with the aim of performing useful functions.
I am particularly interested in the applicability of BMIs as a platform technology for a variety of brain-related medical conditions including stroke and epilepsy.

In the past I worked on neural prostheses: BMIs aiming to restore communication and movement to people with paralysis.
As a graduate student with Krishna Shenoy in the Neural Prosthetic Systems Laboratory, I developed high-performing pre-clinical neural prosthesis models.
This work evolved into a clinical trial and was the focus of my postdoctocal work with Jaimie Henderson and Krishna Shenoy in the Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory.
