I have been teaching at Cal State LA since January 2009. It's been a pleasure to meet many enthusiastic learners here, and work with very supportive faculty-colleagues, adminstrators, and staff.
My specialization is in biomedical engineering, and I have launched 3 new courses in biomedical engineering, which are expected to become part of a special option in Biomedical Engineering within the BS in Engineering program. I also enjoy teaching a variety of courses ranging from electronics to signal processing.
I am the faculty advisor for the Biomedical Engineering Society student organization. To join, please e-mail email@example.com.
Broadly speaking, my main research interests are in acquiring, interpreting, and modulating electrical signals in the body. For example, some of my research has dealt with a medical technology called deep brain stimulation, by which electrical current pulses are delivered to a deep structure in the brain called the subthalamic nucleus. This therapy is used in patients with movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease. The question is why does it stop patients from experiencing symptoms like tremor, and how can we control it better?
My research laboratory is called Neural Engineering Technology Laboratory (NETlab). Presently, we are working on developing a new therapy centered around electrical stimulation of muscle nerves. This therapy is targeted to help spinal cord injury patients regain the abiilty to walk on their own. I am collaborating with Dr. Ray De Leon in Kinesiology on this area of research. We are also running a NeuroEngineering Journal Club..
