Ph.D. in Bioengineering at Caltech - Research interests include plasticity and information processing in cultured neural networks, biomedical signal processing, gastrointestinal electrical activity patterns and bio-robotics.
Ph.D. in Physics from Virginia Tech - Research focuses on fabrication of thin films with self-assembled nanoparticle monolayers, for producing highly reliable, cost-effective anti-reflection optical coatings.
Ph. D. from Virginia Tech - Non-equilibrium statistical physics using analytical methods and computer simulation techniques; interdisciplinary projects, such as the study of molecular motors, traffic jams, and nanoparticle self-assembly.
