Peripheral nerve interfaces/MARTEENI

Alexander completed his BS in biological engineering and brain & cognitive sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2016. Post graduation, he worked at the Massachusetts General Hospital with Dr. W Malik on quantitative biomarkers for neuromuscular and neurodegenerative disorders. His interest in peripheral nerve interfaces stems from previous collaborations with Drs. E Bizzi at MIT and N Thakor at JHU/SINAPSE. Currently, he is co-advised with Dr. Christine Schmidt (Biomimetic Materials & Neural Engineering Lab) on the collaborative tissue-engineered electrode nerve interface (TEENI) project with aims for less-invasive alternatives for functional restoration.

Fun facts: is originally from Los Angeles, is the first in his family to pursue higher education, is the oldest of five siblings, uses a Nikon (DSLR and film), and prefers to be called Xander. He is a nice person, so don’t be afraid to approach him.
