My work focuses on designing novel electrode geometries and increasing the spatial density of electrode contacts of our flexible µECoG electrodes to obtain higher spatial resolution of brain activity. I am also exploring the use of materials such as Liquid Crystal Polymer and Polyimide to increase the long-term reliability and biocompatibility of implanted electrodes. I utilize micro- and nano-fabrication methodologies within the Duke SMiF cleanroom to create these innovative electrodes.
When I am not in lab or the cleanroom, I can be found lifting, doing yoga, trying new restaurants and recipes, and exploring the elevation of North Carolina via hiking!
