Dr. Kevin Otto is a Professor and Senior Associate Chair in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering at the College of Engineering. His research is focused on engineering neural interfaces for both research purposes as well as treatment options in neurological injuries or disease. In particular, his research focuses on multi-channel implantable microdevices in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. These interfaces are being investigated for many applications including: sensory replacement, cognitive functional therapy, and neuromodulation for autonomic therapies. Dr. Otto has 14 undergraduates working in his lab on this research and has also mentored 5 undergraduate researchers through the University Scholars Program.
