Juan Pardo
Juan is PhD student in the Biomedical Engineering program. Juan's research involves microfabricating devices for BCI applications, as well as developing MEMS and BioMEMS techniques to introduce integrated circuitry into implantable electrodes. While he's not tucked away in the cleanroom, he enjoys photography,making music and mixing technology with graphic design.
Thomas Pearce
Tom Pearce is an MD/PhD candidate in the Neurosciences training program. Tom studies the neural basis of planning and execution of voluntary reaching movements by recording the activity of individual neurons in dorsal premotor cortex. When he's not training monkeys to play video games, Tom enjoys brewing and consuming beer, as well as golfing, or more vigorous sports if he happens to be injury-free at any particular time.

Erik Zellmer
Erik's work is aimed towards developing an integrated real-time model simulating the control of the upper limb of macaques through functional electrical stimulation of the peripheral nervous system using novel sieve electrodes. Other ongoing projects include cortical source modeling, mesoscale cortical network modeling, development of wireless transmitters and implantable wireless stimulators.
Leo Li
Leo is a senior undergraduate student majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science and is working on developing a 2D model of the cortical surface. By examining the signals generated by the brain, he hopes to help create more accurate and efficient ECoG arrays.
Ryan Verner
Ryan is a senior BME undergraduate working on collecting data, and testing/maintaining recording and stimulation equipment and training the monkeys. In his spare time, he enjoys playing volleyball and jazz trombone. He will will be graduating December 2012 and hopes to pursue a PhD in Biomedical Engineering after graduation.
