Suhasa Kodandaramaiah[Email: suhasabk, followed by media.mit.edu]
Suhasa started as a visiting Ph.D. student from Georgia Tech, who worked in the Synthetic Neurobiology group for a period of about two years, where he led the collaborative project to automate in vivo patch clamp recording, for his doctoral thesis. Before attending Georgia Tech, he completed degrees at the University of Michigan and the Vishveshwaraiah Technological University in India. As a postdoc, he now is working on new synergies between mechanical engineering and neuroengineering.
