Kristin Sellers is an Associate Professional Researcher in the Chang Lab. She completed her Ph.D. in Neurobiology at UNC-Chapel Hill and a post-doc in the Chang Lab from 2016 to 2020 working on the DARPA-funded SUBNETS project. Her work focuses on using neural activity to inform DBS implant location and closed-loop stimulation in clinical-trials patients and novel neurotechnologies, including new probe and device designs for use in humans. She also contributes to a community effort to adopt standardized data formats to enable easy data sharing and archiving.
