Bryan is a transplant from South Texas. He received his BS in Biomedical Engineering and a Minor in Mathematics from The University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) in 2009. In 2015, he obtained his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University, contributing a body of work on improved electrode design for stimulation of the brain and spine, and in 2018, he completed a fellowship on multi-modal neuroimaging and its application to computational medicine, namely for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and intractable depression with deep brain stimulation.
Bryan is now a Research Scientist managing projects both internally and externally with clinical collaborators at the Mount Sinai Health System and Emory University. His projects have three points of focus: (1) testing new dosing and targeting strategies for treatment of intractable depression with subcallosal cingulate DBS, (2) identifying the neural targets underlying symptom improvements in subthalamic DBS for Parkinson’s disease, and (3) developing new models and methods to study the mechanisms of action of transcranial electrical stimulation.
