Episode 2: Q&A with Dr. Sri Sarma, Johns Hopkins University
In partnership with IEEE EMBS. When it comes to math, Dr. Sri Sarma is a brainiac, quite literally. As the Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University in the Institute for Computational Medicine, Dr. Sarma uses her electrical engineering and control theorist background to mathematically model the human brain. In her research, Dr. Sarma has been able to use electrical stimulation to treat Parkinson’s disease, seizures and other neural-related diseases. In this podcast, Dr. Sarma shares her passion for understanding the brain’s neural circuit and encourages young women interested in pursuing a career as an engineer to think outside the box and to not just think of an engineer as one who tinkers with tools, but one who saves lives.
