|Short Bio

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boise State University. Prior to joining Boise State, I was a Research Scientist at UC Berkeley and the Director of Technology at Cortera Neurotechnologies. I received the Ph.D. degree from Cornell University. My research interests lie at the intersection of integrated circuit design and neuroscience.
