De-Shaine Murray.png  

De-Shaine Murray received his MSci (2017) in Chemistry from the University of Birmingham followed by an MRes (2018) in Neurotechnology from Imperial College London. He is part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Neurotechnology for Life and Health at Imperial College London working on his PhD, titled One Probe: A new device for non-penetrative monitoring of the injured brain under the supervision of Professor Martyn Boutelle. Currently, he is a visiting researcher at Cambridge for the duration of his PhD integrating the expertise of microdialysis and electrocorticography between his research groups to create OneProbe.


Akhila Denduluri.jpg  

Akhila Denduluri received her B.Sc. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Riverside (CA, USA). In 2015, she earned her MSE in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD, USA). During her Master’s, she worked on developing and assessing translational viability of nanoparticle-based gene delivery using fat-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for brain tumor therapy. She is a third year PhD student with the Knowles group in the department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. With support from the Gates Cambridge scholarship, she is working on developing novel microfluidic platforms for investigating cellular heterogeneity and electrical interactions in living systems. Currently, she is collaborating with the Malliaras group to design and fabricate porous, conducting cell-friendly biomaterials.

Divya Chari.jpg  

Divya Chari is Professor of Neural Tissue Engineering at the University of Keele School of Medicine. She is currently on a two year Visiting Academic Fellowship in the Bioelectronics Laboratory, funded by an EPSRC Healthcare Technologies Discipline Hopper award. She has a DPhil in Developmental Neurobiology from Oxford University. This was followed by postdoctoral work at Cambridge University’s Centre for Brain Repair and Veterinary Medicine, latterly funded by a four year UK Multiple Sclerosis Society Junior Fellowship. She joined the University of Keele in 2008 and recently set up the Keele Neural Tissue Engineering group. She also lead the medical school’s Medical Intercalated degree programme, the Medical Research programme (funded by the Academy of Medical Sciences and Wellcome Trust) and the Internationalisation Programme, which includes partnerships in Brasil, Shanghai, Bahrain and Ghana.

Botian Huang received his B.E. and M.E. in Electronic Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China in 2017 and 2020, respectively. He worked on AMOLED displays and thin film transistors. During that period, he took part in an exchange program with Waseda University, Japan and obtained a M.E. degree in 2018. As a PhD student, Botian is working on microelectrode arrays for neural activity recording and stimulation in collaboration with Prof. Manohar Bance.



Yongwoo Lee received his BSc in Electrical Engineering from the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), South Korea, in 2018. He is a second year PhD student with the Bio-Printing and Printed Electronics (BIPP) group in the department of IT Engineering at the POSTECH, South Korea. His research focused on 3D flexible printed electronics. He is currently a visiting graduate student, working on development of design process for the fabrication of inkjet-printed organic electrochemical transistors for electrophysiological signal analysis at Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge.



Stephen O'Neill received his integrated MEng in chemical engineering from the University of Edinburgh in 2020. He undertook his MEng thesis project at Stanford University, which involved the development and integration of organic electronic materials for the wireless operation of biomedical devices. As a PhD student, Stephen is working on developing electrically conductive hydrogel materials for bioelectronic applications, in a collaboration with Prof. Oren Scherman in the Department of Chemistry.
