    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe are investigating and developing, and applying focused ultrasound in neuromodulation, blood brain barrier opening, and ablation for both neuro and body applications.

  • Matthew Petrucci

    Matthew Petrucci

    Research Engineer

    BioMatt is the Scientific Program Manager for the Mobilize and Restore Centers at Stanford University. He is interested in developing digital health tools that optimize human mobility and performance. His previous research has focused on cross-sectional, longitudinal, translational, and feasibility studies in people with Parkinson’s disease, people with multiple sclerosis, and firefighters. These studies included evaluating objective biomarkers of disease or performance, optimizing and evaluating novel treatments and interventions, developing real-time closed-loop algorithms, and clinical trials. He helps run the various scientific outreach and training programs of the Mobilize and Restore Centers.

  • Gordon Pipa

    Gordon Pipa

    Visiting Professor, Bioengineering

    BioGordon Pipa is a visiting Professor at Stanford. His research is focused on understanding the principles of neuronal coding and learning in spiking recurrent neuronal networks with the goal to enable building future neuromorphic AI systems. A main focus is on understanding the dendritic information processing in the context of the large spiking neuronal networks. In the past, he held position at the Max-Planck for Brain Research (Wolf Singer), MIT (Emery Brown), TU Berlin (Klaus Obermayer).

    He currently holds the following positions: Visiting Professor at Stanford, Bioengineering, Chair of the Neuroinformatics Dep., Institute of Cognitive Science at the Osnabrück University (Germany), Director of the Institute of Cognitive Science at the Osnabrück University (Germany), Fellow at the Frankfurt Institute of Advanced Studies (Germany)

    BioWe use interdisciplinary approaches including theory and experiments to understand how computation is embodied in biological matter. Examples include cognition in single cell protists and morphological computing in animals with no neurons and origins of complex behavior in multi-cellular systems. Broadly, we invent new tools for studying non-model organisms with significant focus on life in the ocean - addressing fundamental questions such as how do cells sense pressure or gravity? Finally, we are dedicated towards inventing and distributing “frugal science” tools to democratize access to science (previous inventions used worldwide: Foldscope, Abuzz), diagnostics of deadly diseases like malaria and convening global citizen science communities to tackle planetary scale environmental challenges such as mosquito surveillance or plankton surveillance by citizen sailors mapping the ocean in the age of Anthropocene.

    BioMy research integrates neuroimaging, biomedical signal processing, and the systems neuroscience of general anesthesia and sedation.

    My group conducts human studies of anesthesia-induced unconsciousness, using a variety of techniques including multimodal neuroimaging, high-density EEG, and invasive neurophysiological recordings used to diagnose medically refractory epilepsy. We also develop novel methods in neuroimaging and biomedical signal processing to support these studies, as well as methods for monitoring level of consciousness under general anesthesia using EEG.
