Vikash Gilja

Assistant Professor, ECE, UC San Diego

Dr. Gilja received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2010.  His graduate work focused on the development of novel neural recording systems and high-performance brain-machine interfaces. Subsequently, as a research associate, he helped found the Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory at Stanford University and worked to translate his graduate work to clinical application. Dr. Gilja is a Siebel Scholar and was awarded the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the NDSEG Fellowship. His research interests are oriented towards applying biosensor technologies, imaging techniques, and real time signal processing algorithms to advance the engineering science and clinical application of brain-machine interface.  Dr. Gilja teaches undergraduate courses in systems engineering and signal processing and graduate seminars in neural engineering.
