John is interested in large scale brain phenomena, for application to brain computer interfaces and neural prosthetics. In particular, he wants to answer questions about how visual and auditory stimuli are integrated and processed during decision-making. In the lab, John is developing tools for long-term high-resolution imaging, optogenetic stimulation and electrical recording. After completing an undergraduate degree in Bioengineering at Duke University, John received his PhD from SUNY Downstate Medical Center designing encoding algorithms for somatosensory neural prosthetics. John is now working on exciting projects at Facebook Reality Labs in New York City.
