Amrith graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BS in Electrical Engineering, and he is now pursuing a PhD in Electrical Engineering at Stanford with a neuroscience focus. As part of the collaborative Artificial Retina project, his research focuses on the design of efficient real-time control algorithms for a microelectrode array based retinal prosthesis to treat patients blinded by photoreceptor degeneration diseases. More broadly, he is interested in designing computational systems and architectures that will support the Artificial Retina project and similar neural engineering applications. His previous work includes research in the fields of wireless communications and radio frequency integrated circuits.
