Erica Jung is a postdoctoral associate in the Synthetic Neurobiology group at the MIT Media Lab. Before this appointment, she received her PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Cornell University. Her research focus at Cornell was to integrate optical, biological, and microfluidic components in miniaturized systems for novel applications in reconfigurable photonics and photobioreactors. At MIT, she is working on developing genetically encoded fluorescent reporters of neural activity, for in vivo imaging, by developing and applying novel techniques.
