Arturo Andrade is a professor of brain science (research) at Brown University and specializes in neuroscience. He taught at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) from 2015 to 2021, when he moved to Brown. Dr. Andrade got involved in the project with neuroscience major Vladimir Tkachev through his UNH colleague Dr. Edward Song, an engineer studying ways to design novel sensing devices that accurately record concentrations of chemicals released in the brain. With Dr. Song interested in applying his sensing platforms in neuroscience research and Dr. Andrade being a neuroscientist, the collaboration couldn’t have been more perfect. Dr. Andrade previously mentored former UNH undergraduate researchers Sumeet Panesar and Zachary Tepper, co-authors in the 2017 issue of Inquiry. Dr. Andrade appreciates Vlad’s valuable contributions to the research team last summer.
