Primary Faculty

Ravi Venkat Bellamkonda

Ravi Venkat Bellamkonda

Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering

Research Interests: Engineered devices for brain tumor therapy; immunomodulation for peripheral and central nervous system repair; biomaterials; brain-machine interfaces.

Sina Farsiu

Sina Farsiu

Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering

Research Interests: Farsiu's research focuses on medical imaging and image processing to improve the overall health and vision outcome of patients with ocular and neurological diseases (e.g., age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, Alzheimer, and ALS) through earlier and personalized therapy.

Jonathan Viventi

Jonathan Viventi

Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering

Research Interests: Dr. Viventi's research uses flexible electronics to create new technology for interfacing with the brain at high resolution over large areas. These new tools can help diagnose and treat neurological disorders such as epilepsy, and help improve the performance of brain machine interfaces.
