Materials Science and Engineering
high resolution neural prosthesis, photovoltaic retinal stimulation

Andrew graduated from UC San Diego in 2019 with a major in NanoEngineering and a minor in
Mathematics. Currently, he is working on his PhD in Daniel Palanker’s group at Stanford. His research
focuses on developing retinal prosthesis with high resolution and acuity for restoration of sight in retinal
degeneration. He is aiming to achieve the single neuron stimulation of electro neural interfaces by
fabricating a novel photovoltaic array with 3-D interface with pixel sizes down to cellular dimensions.
Outside of lab, Andrew is a member of Stanford men’s rugby club and rowing crew in Bair Island Aquatic
Center.
