Nima Mesgarani, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

My research interests are in information processing of acoustic signals at the interface of engineering and neuroscience. Using an interdisciplinary research approach, our goal is to bridge the gap between these two disciplines by reverse engineering the signal processing in the brain, which in turn inspires novel approaches to emulate human abilities in machines.

This integrated research approach leads to better scientific understanding of the brain, novel speech processing algorithms for automated systems, and innovative methods for Brain-Machine Interface and neural prosthesis.

I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering from University of Maryland. I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP) of Johns Hopkins University, and Neurosurgery Department at University of California San Francisco.
