Episode 12: Q&A with Dr. Cindy Chestek, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at University of Michigan
In partnership with IEEE EMBS. Dr. Cindy Chestek, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan, began her career as an electrical engineer but is now immersed in the world of brain-machine interfaces (BMIs). She is working diligently on hardware and algorithms for BMIs with the goal of developing better prosthetic control of multi-articulated finger movements. We spoke with Dr. Chestek at the 2019 International IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering where she shared more about her work in prosthetics and peripheral nerves, how carbon fiber electrode arrays are changing the game, and much more.
