Research Title: Dissection of large-scale brain networks using optogenetic fMRI

Research Description: Andrew works at the interface of neuroscience, engineering, and imaging to better understand how the brain works in health and disease. He currently uses optical, electrophysiological, and functional imaging techniques to identify large-scale networks in the brain and their functional significance in diseases such as epilepsy. Research in this area will help elucidate the mechanisms of current "black box" therapies, such as deep brain stimulation, as well as drive the development of novel, more targeted, and effective treatments.


Andrew is a co-founder of Infinity AI, a venture-backed startup company that provides synthetic data as a service.
