Dr. Muller, Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley, is the recipient of the 2017 Keysight Early Career Professor Award for her work on wireless interfaces to the brain and body.

Dr. Muller’s research focuses on developing integrated systems containing precision instrumentation electronics that directly interface with the human body and brain. These minimally invasive systems with wireless interfaces measure, monitor, and treat the host organism. Studies using these systems will improve our understanding of the brain and point the way toward improved treatment strategies.

In addition to her affiliation with the EECS department, Muller is a member of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center and the Center for Neural Engineering & Prostheses at UC Berkeley. She is a co-founder of Cortera Neurotechnologies, Inc. and was named in 2015 as one of the top 35 global innovators under the age of 35 by the MIT Technology Review.

Prof. Rikky Muller received her B.S. and M.S. degrees from MIT in 2004 and her Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 2013 all in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. From 2004 to 2007 Dr. Muller worked at Analog Devices as an IC design engineer.
