Understanding the neural basis of brain function
and harnessing its power is arguably a grand challenge of our era. Brain is a
very complex organ composed of billions of neurons that form circuits and
networks that mediate our behavior. Our research is focused on developing novel
tools and techniques to better understand the brain function. Having a clear
understanding of the application space in neuroscience and biophotonic, and a
deep knowledge of applied physics, we design, and build next generation neural
interfaces. Using our neural interfaces we target areas of application both in fundamental
neuroscience and Brain-machine interfaces (BMIs). Using concepts in
electromagnetics, semiconductor physics, optics, and MEMS, and material science
we are developing multimodal (acousto-opto-electrical) neural interfaces. The scope of research in our group encompasses
theoretical design and simulation, fabrication and packaging, experimental
benchtop characterization, as well as in-vivo, in-vitro, and ex-vivo tests on
