Vikram received a B.A.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo (2005) and an MSE in Biomedical Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University (2007). He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins. Vikram's primary research interests include braincomputer interfaces, neuroprosthetics, and biomedical instrumentation. He is currently engaged in breakthrough research as part of an ambitious $30.4 million project funded by DARPA to develop a fully neurally controlled upper-limb prosthesis. Vikram has a 4.0 GPA in graduate school, and received an NSERC Post-Graduate Fellowship valued at $63,000 over three years. He was also formerly a Medtronic Scholar as the top neuroengineering candidate in BME. His leadership experience includes President of the Masters Student Council and executive board member of the Hopkins Medical Device Network. He has co-authored over 15 peer-reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings and is the recipient of IEEE EMBC Neural Eng Student Award (2007) and IEEE-NIH Travel Award (2008) for research work he presented. Vikram has extensive industry experience in research, software consulting, and device engineering at companies including Sun Microsystems Laboratories and ATI Technologies. As a budding entrepreneur, Vikram is also co-founder of cVision Medical Solutions, a medical device startup that has developed an instrument to noninvasively measure central venous pressure using ultrasound. The team has won the JHU and Harvard Biotech Club business plan competitions, an NCIIA Advanced E-Team grant, and over $35,000 in grants and prize money.
