Our group works primarily in a space encompassing integrated circuits and biology. This covers projects in both biomedical and ecological instrumentation, as well as biomimetic system design. As a result, we have had to develop a range of expertise, from signal processing algorithms to systems architecture to transistor-level circuits to opto-electronic device physics to wet biology (and especially neurobiology). This broad range of interests is rooted in core expertise in radio communications circuits and sensory (and especially visual) neuroscience. One of the great things about interdisciplinary research is that reveals fundamental similarities across problems, and so spurs new interdisciplinary research in unexpected directions. We are often confused, but rarely bored.
