Getting to my office
My office is in the Woodruff Memorial Research Building (WMB) Rm 6001, on Emory’s campus. (The building at Woodruff Circle, where all the buses and the GT-Emory Stinger shuttle go.)
Enter the building from the circle, take the elevator up to the 6th floor, my office is the first one on your right. (If you don’t enter the building from the side with the circle, well, good luck.)

As a researcher, the mission of my lab is to produce work that truly advances the fields of neuroengineering and neuroscience, develops novel strategies and devices to treat disorders of the nervous system, expands our knowledge of the brain, and never compromises in quality and scientific integrity.
As a PI, I expect my lab members to be driven, focused, and passionate about their work. My goal as a mentor is to ensure that my trainees are working on projects that align with their long-term goals and interests. I will, to the best of my ability, strive to keep roadblocks out of their way so they can focus on producing the highest quality research possible. Above all, my goal is to create an openly collaborative research environment where the research team is happy and productive.
