Erin Kunz

Ketterer-Vorwald Neurosciences Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellow
PhD Student
Electrical Engineering

Erin is a PhD student in the Electrical Engineering department currently working in the Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory with Dr. Krishna Shenoy and Dr. Jamie Henderson, and co-advised by Dr. Scott Linderman. She is interested in utilizing novel machine learning and statistical modeling techniques to improve decoding algorithms for brain computer interfaces (BCIs) in assistive neural prosthetic devices, particularly for rapid, dexterous motor sequences such as speech and handwriting. Prior to starting at Stanford, she worked as a Controls Engineer in Automated & Autonomous Driving at General Motors and earned her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley.
