Research Areas

Advances in nanotechnology, driven by decades of semiconductor manufacturing, allow us to control the size and shape of materials with a resolution that is smaller than an individual brain cell. At this scale, we can precisely tune the properties of materials and devices to sense, manipulate, and control the activity of the nervous system with improved sensitivity, specificity, and biocompatibility. Thus, nanotechnology provides an opportunity to create devices that seamlessly integrate with the body to improve the treatment of neurological disorders and provide better tools to study fundamental neuroscience. In our lab, we investigate electronic, photonic, and magnetic nanotechnologies as a platform for these next-generation neural interfaces.
