Biography

Matthew Cavuto photoMatthew Cavuto completed his undergraduate studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and concentrating in Biomechanics and Biomedical Devices. Following graduation, he received a Marshall Scholarship, funding two years of graduate studies in the United Kingdom. Having recently finished a MSc in Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London, he is remaining for another year to pursue an MPhil in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and continuing his research in the Next Generation Neural Interfaces Group at the Centre for Bio-Inspired Technology. His research focuses on the design and development of mechanically robust architectures and insertion methods for mm-scale wireless neural probes.   Following his studies at Imperial College London, he will enter the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology (HST) Medical Engineering and Medical Physics (MEMP) PhD program.
