Ross Daniel Venook
BioRoss is a Lecturer in the Bioengineering department and he directs Engineering at the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign.
Ross co-leads two undergraduate courses at Stanford—an instrumentation lab (BIOE123) and an open-ended capstone design lab sequence (BIOE141A/B)—and he supports other courses and runs hands-on workshops in the areas of prototyping and systems engineering related to medical device innovation. He enjoys the unique challenges and constraints offered by biomedical engineering projects, and he delights in the opportunity for collaborative learning in a problem-solving environment.
An Electrical Engineer by training (Stanford BS, MS, PhD), Ross’ graduate work focused on building and applying new types of MRI hardware for interventional and device-related uses. Following a Biodesign Innovation fellowship, Ross helped to start the MRI safety program at Boston Scientific Neuromodulation, where he continues working across the MRI safety community to create and improve international standards and to enable safe MRI access for patients with implanted medical devices.
Ph.D. Student in Bioengineering, admitted Autumn 2014
BioHow does the brain prepare and execute movements from as simple as reaching for a cup of coffee to performing a perfectly synchronized dive? Which computational principles does the brain use to help us learn new motor skills? Do these insights enable development of next-generation medical devices that can help people with movement disorders? To study these questions, I apply techniques from statistical signal processing, machine learning, and dynamical system theory to uncover computational motifs that underlie motor control and learning.
