Sirma is a postdoctoral associate at MIT’s Institute of Medical Engineering Science. Her PhD research focused on developing energy-efficient circuits and systems, with an emphasis on bio-medical and neuroscience applications. She has developed a platform which involves a modular, light-weight, head-borne neuromodulation platform that achieves low-power wireless neuromodulation and allows bi-directional communication to monitor and manipulate the brain activity in real-time.She used MATLAB to send stimulation updates to the neuromodulation device as well as to receive and visualize the recorded brain activity. The graphical user interface she developed can be used in various neuromodulation experiments. Sirma earned a BS in electrical and electronics engineering from Middle East Technical University, Turkey and an SM and PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT.
