Michel Maharbiz is one of the inventors of neural dust, a low-power solution for chronic brain-machine interfaces and untethered neural recording. He also developed the world’s first remotely radio-controlled cyborg insects (beetles), a project named one of the top ten emerging technologies of 2009 by MIT’s Technology Review. Maharbiz is an associate professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. His current research focuses on building nanoscopic interfaces with cells and organisms. He is a Bakar Fellow and co-founder of Tweedle Technologies, Cortera Neurotech, and Microreactor Technologies.
