Ken Yoshida received the B.S.E. degree in bioengineering in 1989 from the University of California at Los Angeles, and the Ph.D. degree in bioengineering from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City in 1994. From 1995 to 1998, he was an AHFMR (Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research) and Canadian NeuroScience NCE Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta at the Division of Neuroscience. From 1998 – 2006, he joined the faculty at the Department of Health Science and Technology and the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction at Aalborg University, where he was an Associate Professor until his departure to IUPUI in Oct 2006. His research focus is the development of selective neural interfaces, in particular, intrafascicular peripheral nerve devices, and the application of these devices to study natural neuromuscular control and to investigate natural sensor based FNS systems.
Dr. Yoshida is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, the International Functional Electrical Stimulation Society, the Biomedical Engineering Society, the IEEE-Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, and Tau Beta Pi.
