“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood …” - Marie Curie

I am a 4th year Ph.D. student at the Computational Sensory-Motor Systems (CSMS) Lab, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Johns Hopkins University (JHU). My current research spans the spectrum of biomorphic computer vision, neuromorphic circuits & systems that promise “greener” Artificial Intelligence and neural interfacing electronics that hold implications for neurorehabilation as well as bidirectional communication between digital and biological (neural tissue) computers. I am advised by Dr. Ralph Etienne-Cummings, known for early works in the neuromorphic engineering and robotics. Prior to joining the CSMS Lab in 2020, I worked as a research intern at the Dr. James Weiland’s BioElectronic Vision Lab, University of Michigan. There, I collaborated on a number of projects in the areas of retinal prostheses, optimization for closed-loop neurostimulation[1] and calcium imaging. In Summer 2022, I received the MSE in Electrical Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University en route the Ph.D. I also received an MS in Electronics Engineering from Norfolk State University(NSU) in 2020. At NSU, I worked at the Computational Cardiac Engineering Lab and was advised by Dr. Makarand Deo. My master’s thesis there focused on the formulation of heuristically optimized computational model[2] of a stem cell-derived cardiomyocyte with implications in cardiac safety pharmacology. I hold a BSc. Biomedical Engineering (First Class Honors) from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana which I received in 2017. On the lighter side, I love to cook and listen to Afrobeats. At my leisure, I dabble in world history, philosophy and sci-fi. Before and after a hard day’s work, I pet/walk Zeus, my dawg!
