Dion Khodagholy is a postdoctoral fellow in the Neuroscience Institute at the NYU Langone Medical Center. He received his master’s degree from University of Birmingham (UK) in electronic and communication engineering in 2008, followed by a second master’s degree in microelectronics at École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Étienne (France). He joined the Department of Bioelectronics (BEL) at Centre Microélectronique de Provence (CMP) and completed his Ph.D. in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. George Malliaras.
His work at BEL focused on developing conducting polymer-based devices for bioelectronics application, particularly for neural interface devices. He is interested in how novel materials and devices can be employed to gain insight into mechanisms of physiological and pathological brain activities.
