Dr Faisal is a Senior Lecturer in Neurotechnology jointly at the Dept. of Bioengineering and the Dept. of Computing at Imperial College London. He is also Associate Group Head at the MRC Clinical Sciences Center (Hammersmith Hosptial) and is affiliated faculty at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit (University College London).
Dr Faisal’s lab combines cross-disciplinary computational and experimental approaches to investigate how the brain and its neural circuits have evolved to learn and control goal-directed movements.
The neuroscientific findings enable the targeted development of novel technology for clinical and research applications for a variety of neurological/motor disorders and amputees.
