P.I. – Todd Coleman

I am an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at UCSD. As of July 1, 2021, I am in the Bioengineering Department at Stanford (you can find me here). I hold B.S. degrees in electrical engineering and computer engineering from the University of Michigan (GO BLUE). My M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering at MIT were conducted under the guidance of Muriel Médard. My postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience at Mass General Hospital and MIT was conducted under the guidance of Emery Brown. I was an Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Neuroscience at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, from 2006 until 2011.
