His passion for signal processing related to EEG abnormalities in mental illness earned him a secondary appointment as a Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering Arts and Sciences. Additionally, his laboratory has established new methods for the treatment of schizophrenia by inventing long acting biodegradable implants, now under development for clinical application.
