Jonathan Viventi, Assistant Professor, New York University

Jonathan Viventi is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering and an assistant professor of neural science at New York University. His research applies innovations in flexible electronics, low-power analog circuits, and machine learning to create new technology for interfacing with the brain at a much finer scale and with broader coverage than was previously possible. He creates new tools for neuroscience research and technology to diagnose and treat neurological disorders, such as epilepsy. His work has been featured as cover articles in Science Translational Medicine and Nature Materials, and has also appeared in Nature Neuroscience, the Journal of Neurophysiology, and Brain. His work has earned many honors, including a Taking Flight Award from Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE), a “Grand Challenge” award from New York University and several research awards from the University of Pennsylvania. He received master's and bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania.
