|Background: Michael earned his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and a Masters in Biomedical Engineering from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He earned a PhD in Computer Science from UC Irvine. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the labs of Ione Fine (Psychology, Institute for Neuroengineering) and Ariel Rokem (eScience Institute) at the University of Washington, where he developed computational models of bionic vision. Current Role: Michael is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Computer Science and Psychological & Brain Sciences at UC Santa Barbara, where he directs the Bionic Vision Lab, an interdisciplinary research group interested in the computational modeling of human, animal, computer, and prosthetic vision to elucidate the science behind bionic technologies that may one day restore useful vision to people living with incurable blindness. He is also the Associate Director of the UCSB Center for Virtual Environments and Behavior (ReCVEB) and recipient of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award as well as the prestigious DP2 New Innovator Award
. Michael’s research focuses on the development of novel methods and algorithms to interface sight recovery technologies such as retinal implants with the human visual system, with the ultimate goal of restoring useful vision to the blind. Read more about Michael’s research here
. Outside of work: Michael enjoys spending time with his family, particularly playing with his young son outdoors.
