I am interested in neuro-engineering and neuroscience, specifically in enabling the extension of optogenetic techniques to the peripheral nervous system. My current research involves the use of viral vectors to deliver photo-sensitive opsins to peripheral nerves, with the broader goal of enabling muscle-specific optical control. My previous work involved the development of electrophysiological techniques to characterize spinal cord injury.
B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, 2010.
