Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Makin-Dadarlat earned her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Purdue University and her Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of California San Francisco, where she was a postdoctoral scholar. She is the recipient of the Brain-computer Interface Research Award from g.tec and was a fellow for Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain.
Her research interests include understanding how animals learn to use novel sensory information to guide movements, as well as the application of these principles to neural prostheses to enhance adult neuroplasticity and promote recovery from neural injury and disease. She has studied how to use electrical stimulation of primary somatosensory cortex to deliver artificial sensation.
