  • B.S. Biomedical Engineering, Duke University
Areas of interest:
Brain-computer interface, biofeedback
Emily is a Ph.D. candidate studying Neural Engineering in the Bioengineering Department. Her specific interests are in brain-computer interface (BCI) devices to enhance communication and their broader applications. Her current research under the advisement of Dr. James Patton analyzes non-invasive laryngeal electromyographic signals as a method to enhance communication in loud environments as well as the neurological basis of speech communication.

Emily received her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University with a certificate in Neuroscience. She received a Fulbright Scholarship to study brain-computer interface in Tubingen, Germany, where she developed a BCI internet browser for patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Other research experience includes working under the guidance of Dr. Christopher Moore at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and at the Walter A. Hoyt, Jr. Musculoskeletal Research Lab at St. Thomas Hospital in Akron, Ohio.
