amy orsbornI’m a postdoctoral researcher at New York University. My research in Bijan Pesaran‘s lab focuses on developing tools to study neural signals at different spatial scales. We aim to use these tools to both study reaching and grasping behaviors, and to improve motor brain-machine interfaces (BMIs). I’m broadly interested in neural engineering and applying engineering techniques to study the central nervous system. 
Before coming to NYU, I completed my Ph.D. in the UC Berkeley – UCSF Joint Graduate Group in Bioengineering working with Jose M. Carmena. My dissertation explored adaptation in BMI systems. I completed my bachelors at Case Western Reserve University in Engineering Physics with a concentration in Biomedical Engineering.
In 2018, I will be joining the University of Washington as an assistant professor in Electrical Engineering and Bioengineering. If you’re interested in positions in my lab, please get in touch
