Mentee Alex Franke Completes Summer REU Program

Me and Alex Franke holding a poster.

Alex Franke, my mentee for the Summer, just completed the CSNE‘s Research Experience for Undergraduates program. Over the course of 10-weeks, Alex helped put together a questionnaire for people using Deep Brain Stimulators (DBS)—the goal being to see if invasive neural technologies alter their users’ sense of autonomy, self-control, or personal identity. It was excellent working with Alex, and I look forward to seeing how he uses the tools he learned over the Summer in the rest of his academic and professional life. Congratulations, Alex! Also, congratulations to all of the CSNE’s summer students! Read more about their work here.
