My research revolves around sensor systems, including topics such as front-end sensor interfacing, signal conditioning electronics, sensor design, feature extraction, data readout and processing. I work on emerging technologies including neural recording and stimulation, brain machine interfacing, biosensing for threat detection and diagnostics, and image/video/sound/localization processing. These applications are fundamentally interesting to me and also provide vehicles to develop ideas for next-generation sensor system design. A core theme of my work is holistic, system-aware design fueled by a disciplined approach to traditional subjects such as mixed signal electronics and software engineering. I connect these domains to sensor systems through an understanding of sensor and device physics, materials science, and signal processing.
