Dr Alex Harris
Role: Project Leader
Alex uses a range of techniques including electrochemistry, microscopy and electrophysiology to understand and improve electrodes for sensing and bionic applications. He also has an interest in the ethical implications of the types of medical devices he is developing.
Specific projects include: investigating the impact of different proteins on electrode surfaces; testing different materials for modifying electrodes for bionic applications; understanding how electric fields and electrochemical processes interact with neurons; and using new manufacturing techniques to create next generation bionic devices.
