Alissa Ling graduated from Washington University in St. Louis as a double major in Applied Math and Physics. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Electrical Engineering in Professor Paul Nuyujukian's Brain Interfacing Lab (BIL). Her research goal is to advance our understanding of motor cortical control of naturalistic behavior by developing a platform that combines wireless electrophysiology with a markerless motion capture system. She hopes that her research can inform clinical studies that can improve the standard of care for patients with motor disabilities.
