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. Flexible Electronics and Brain Interfaces combine disciplines like electronics, materials, neuroscience and signal processing. Pursuing a PhD in this topic allows me to learn, discover, design, and provides me with an opportunity to further the scientific field while, most importantly, having an impact on the well being of people affected by neurological diseases and prostheses.


My hobbies include soccer, volleyball, guitar, reading, hiking and lots of food, where the exception of "quantity over quality" often holds.
