Iakov Rachinskiy


Ph.D. Student

Having both great interest in the human nervous system and in designing solutions within the medical field, I found neural engineering as a great opportunity to combine my passions. I am currently working on developing high-density, chronically implantable devices with wireless communication capability for the improvement of seizure detection and characterization in the clinic.

In my spare time I enjoy soccer, volleyball, guitar, reading, hiking and lots of food, where the exception of "quantity over quality" often holds.
