David Borton, PhD
Assistant Professor of Engineering
David Borton is an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Brown University School of Engineering and the Brown Institute for Brain Science. His research enables basic science innovation through technological integration. Dr. Borton currently focuses on engineering new tools for wireless neural recording and stimulation in order to untangle neuromotor disease states, and more generally to understand how these states are dynamically represented in the brain and spinal cord. Using these tools, he explores how motor processing in the brain evolves during long-term, naturalistic recording. Prof. Borton received his Bachelors degree in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2006, his doctorate in Biomedical Engineering from Brown University in 2012, and performed his post-doctoral training at the Ecole Polytechnique in Lausanne Switzerland (EPFL) under a Marie Curie International Fellowship. In 2015, Prof. Borton received the DARPA Young Faculty Award.
