Ultramicroelectrode arrays

Qiwei received his B.S. degree in Cognitive Science, specialized in Machine Learning and Neural Computation at the University of California, San Diego in 2019. He then received his M.S. degree in Neurobiology at the Northwestern University. His M.S. research with Dr. Lee Miller focused on single-cell level neural recordings of primates doing free-reaching upper limb movements. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Florida. He is focusing on understanding the properties of ultramicroelectrode arrays in vivo during recording and stimulating and using these novel tools to approach neuroscience questions.
