Previous Students and Interns
Kyle Kramer: BSEE 2021. Kyle completed many different tasks while in the group including electrophysiology and electrical testing, as well as sensor systems for the neural networks and investigating integration of neural networks and industrial control system protocols.
Nate Fisher: BSEE 2021. Nate became the guru of embedded systems and PCB design while in the group. He was primarily responsible for spiking neuron circuit design and testing, and ultimately the Neural Application Test Environment (NATE) 2.0, our current neuromorphic hardware platform.
Susy Camargo: BSEE 2018. Susy was part of the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LASAMP) program at Boise State, and also received a HERC fellowship to continue the research during the fall semester of 2017. She worked on electrical characterization of neuromorphic circuits and is now employed at HP Boise.
Kameron Sellers: BSEE 2018. Kameron lead the development of the hardware artificial neural network stimulator (HANNS) platform. He is now working for the US Army Corps of Engineers.
Catherine Walker: BSMSE 2018. Catherine’s research projects included developing bonding processes for flexible electronics, piezoelectric polymers, and materials characterization. She received a Boise State Summer Research Initiative Fellowship in 2014.
Justin Stadlbauer, BSEE. Justin is an undergraduate student pursuing a double major in electrical engineering and physics. His research was focused on development of electrophysiology capabilities for neural interface testing.
Conor Perry, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo MSE (Summer 2016). Conor is part of the MSE REU program in Materials for Energy and Sustainability. He worked with the new Fuji Dimatix materials inkjet printer to create a standard process for silver printing for interconnects and carbon-based thin-film transistors.
Sierra Bush, Meridian Technical Charter High School (September 2015-May 2016). Sierra was a high school student in the electronics track at MTCHS, and assisted the group in obtaining advanced electrical measurements on a variety of semiconductor devices such as memristors.
Samantha D’az: BSEE . Samantha received an INBRE fellowship in 2015 to refine the testing capabilities of our electrophysiology system by automating control of the various components.
Vlad Calugaru, BSEE 2015. Vlad’s research involved developing electrical characterization techniques for artificial neural networks and their constituent devices. Vlad grew up in Romania, and moved to the United States at the age of 12. He loves to play piano and guitar, ride dirt bikes, and spend time outdoors.
