Ilya completed his Bachelor's and Master's work in Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH). He was pursuing his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech when he joined the Synthetic Neurobiology Group as a visiting student. During that time, he worked on pattern discovery in neural data. His interests include computational neuroscience and neural interfacing technologies.
