Dion Khodagholy’s research aims to use unique properties of materials for the purpose of designing and developing novel electronic devices that allow efficient interaction with biological substrates, specifically neural networks and the brain. This process involves design, characterization, and fabrication of high-performance biocompatible electronics to acquire and analyze neural data. The ultimate goal is to translate such advances in electronics, materials, and neuroscience into more effective diagnostics and treatments for neuropsychiatric diseases.

Khodagholy joined Columbia Engineering in 2017.  He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in systems neuroscience at New York University, Langone Medical Center. He received his PhD in 2012 and his MS in electrical engineering in 2009, both from the École des Mines in France, and a Masters in engineering from the University of Birmingham, U.K, in 2008.
