My main focus in the lab is designing a clinically robust and flexible hardware and software data acquisition system for next generation active flexible brain and cardiac electrodes. Electrodes able to properly interface with the non-uniform contours of the brain and cardiac tissue for indefinite periods of time require a new, flexible electrode solution, requiring an equally novel data acquisition systems capable of properly processing the multiplexed signals from an arbitrarily shaped and sized intracranial electrode grid. Developing this data acquisition system to be simple and reliable requires it to interface flawlessly with many different electrode designs: high-density brain electrodes, cardiac stimulation electrodes, brain stimulating electrodes, etc. By deploying a flexible acquisition platform to interface with the flexible electrodes I hope to accelerate the pace of viable long-term BCI (brain-computer interface) therapies.
