Neuroprosthetics, neurodegneration, neuroregeneration/neurorehabilitation

I am interested in a variety of neurosurgical and biomedical engineering topics ranging from traumatic brain injury to the application of neuroprosthetic technologies to treat paretic or paralyzed nerves/muscles. Additionally, I am interested in developing/refining technologies with direct clinical applications and conducting preclinical investigations in order to translate these technologies to the bedside.
