Our research focuses on providing theoretical foundations and engineering platforms for realizing electronics that seamlessly integrate with the body. Such systems will allow precise recording or modulation of physiological activity, for advancing basic scientific discovery and for restoring or augmenting biological functions for clinical applications. To build these integrated biomedical systems, our research program emphasizes a vertical integration of diverse fields ranging from physics, wireless technologies, low-power integrated circuits, and biological interfaces.
