What Got You Interested in Research?
I just never wanted a normal job. I wanted to design really complicated things or solve previously unsolvable problems.
Why did you choose the University of Minnesota?
I really enjoyed talking to the professors here, and there are a lot of neuroscience faculty that do "engineering" things.
