Dr. Lankarany is an early career investigator with a unique combination of knowledge: he has a PhD in electrical engineering (Concordia University, Montreal, Canada) and expertise in theoretical and computational neuroscience (Post-doc, SickKids, Canada), as well as advanced signal processing and information theory (Industrial Post-doc, Myant Inc). He has 10+ years of experience working with digital and analogue circuits. During his 2 years at the company Myant, he implemented advanced signal processing algorithms on micro-controllers and FPGAs and designed and developed analog circuits for sensing very weak electrophysiological signals (like EEG) using dry electrodes. He also gained experience performing in vitro experiments and using the dynamic clamp technique during his postdoctoral training at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).
