Research Scientist of Neuroscience and Education, MIT

Andrés Salazar-Gomez

Andrés   Felipe Salazar Gómez is a research scientist at MIT Open Learning working on   neuroscience and education. Prior, he was a postdoctoral associate at the MIT   Jameel World Education Lab working on data science education and a   postdoctoral fellow at the Distributed Robotics Lab at MIT where he explored   the use of brain activity for volitional control of robots during human-robot   collaborative tasks. He was a visiting student at the Miller Lab at the   Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT where he worked on non-human   primate electrophysiology and decoder error detection during brain-machine   interface (BMI) control. The focus of his research is developing BMI for   augmentative and alternative communication and human-robot interaction, and   exploring ways to improve higher education in Latin America especially for   STEM education. He received his B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from EIA   University, Colombia, and earned his Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience from   Boston University.
