I find both the study of neural systems and the discipline of engineering them fascinating.

I've worked from wet biology through prosthetic systems and neuromorphic sensors and processors to computational neuroscience and machine learning.

In particular, I've developed lots of know-how as a neuromorphic engineer, creating electronic circuits which in some way mimic computation in animals' nervous systems. These circuits, integrated on microchips, often using flows of electrical current to imitate the currents which flow through the nerve cells in our brains.

I've been involved in the commercialisation of neuromorphic vision sensors. This has taken me into dozens of commercial R&D departments and I've developed an unparalleled insight into the current attempts of many major companies to adopt neuromorphic technology.

I'm very curious to understand more about how our nervous systems allow us to function, and how our mental lives arise. I see huge potential in neural computation and in robotic technology to assist us and improve our lives.
