Engineering the neuronal response to
electrical microstimulation

Angelique completed her BS in Electrical Engineering at the University of Florida in 2022. Her interest in the electrical stimulation of stem cells from her undergraduate research experience with Dr. Erin Patrick led her to pursue graduate research with Dr. Kevin Otto working on the electrical stimulation of neural units. Currently, she is a PhD student in Dr. Otto’s Neuroprostheses Research Lab collaborating with an interdisciplinary team to engineer neural interfaces, specifically, multi-channel implantable microdevices in both the central and peripheral nervous systems.
