Electrical and Computer Engineering
Joel is an M.S./Ph.D. student in the electrical engineering
department at Tufts University. He received bachelor’s
degrees in physics and electrical engineering from Colorado
College and Columbia University, respectively. As an
undergraduate, Joel participated in research projects in
NIR spectroscopy for breast cancer imaging, low-cost fluorescence
PCR, and portable flow cytometry systems. Prior to coming
to Tufts, he worked as a software engineer at Fairchild
Semiconductor in Portland, Maine.
Joel is working on a joint project between Dr. Mike Levin’s
and Dr. Valencia Koomson’s labs to develop platforms to
study non-neural cellular learning. The goal of this work
is to enable signal transfer between electrically excitable
cells and extracellular electronics or sensors.
