Our Core Team
CO-FOUNDER Jorg Scholvin, PhD
Jorg obtained both his undergraduate degree and his PhD in electrical engineering and computer science at MIT. During his postdoctoral work at MIT, he designed novel microfabricated neural interfaces. As NDT’s CTO, he is responsible for overseeing and directing NDT's principle engineering strategies.
SENIOR MICROFABRICATION ENGINEER Girish Rughoobur, PhDGirish studied electrical engineering at University College London (UCL) and Caltech and received a PhD in engineering from Cambridge University. As a postdoctoral scientist at MIT, he performed research using a variety of nanofabrication technologies. As NDT’s Senior Engineer, he is in charge of device fabrication, device packaging, and circuit design.
Computational Scientist Yanal QushairYanal has a B.S. degree in symbolic systems and a M.S. degree in computer science from Stanford University. As a computational scientists at NDT, he is responsible for modeling efforts of neural interfaces and data analysis pipelines.
Senior Microfabrication Engineer Mohammad Ghajar, PhDMohammad has a PhD in mechanical engineering and over 10 years of research experience in microfabrication, biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering. His most recent work focused on developing flexible implantable neural implants, with a focus on improving the longevity of implanted neural electrodes.
