  • Navaneethakrishna Makaram, PhD - Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Boston Children's Hospital/Harvard Medical School

 

  • AimeAime' Cristina De la Vega - Undergraduate Intern Student        Aime is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering at Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey in Mexico. She is  passionate about research related to improving the quality of life and the generation of new knowledge and devices that meet this goal. Outside of academics, she is a volleyball player, likes exercising, sports and listening to music.

 

  • Siye (Annie) Zhu - Graduate Intern Student -  Computer Science, Harvard University, (USA)

 

  •  JoJohn chenhn Chen - Undergraduate Intern Student -  Computer Science, Harvard University, (USA)       John Chen is working towards his undergraduate degree in computer science at Harvard. He is currently working on developing computer tools to assist in detecting the epileptogenic zones in children with drug-resistant epilepsy using EEG and MRI scans. Outside of academics, John enjoys taking walks along the Charles River.

 

  • Georgios_NtolkerasGeorgios Ntolkeras, MD - Associate Personnel at BCH; Resident in Child Neurology at Baystate Hospital        Georgios Ntolkeras received his MD from University of Thessaly (Greece) in 2017. He is currently a Resident in Child Neurology at Baystate Hospital and Associate Personnel at Harvard Medical and Boston Children's Hospital, where he conducts research and is part of the Clinical MEG team. He is also Associate personnel at Massachussetts General Hospital, Athinoula Martinos Center for Biomedical Engineering. His research is dedicated to the analysis of EEG and MEG data from children with epilepsy, with particular focus on the localization of interictal epilepsy patterns for the identification of the epileptogenic zone before surgery. He is also working on an endpoint enabling study of children and adults with Angelman Syndrome, where he contributes by analyzing polysomnography data to characterize both EEG sleep and epielptiform activity in this population.
