Brendan is motivated by the incredible capacity that microelectronics technologies have to enhance people's lives, and aims to leverage those technologies to deliver impactful solutions for individuals, and the world. Brendan completed his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 2014, where the focus of his dissertation was the development of microchips for neural recording, using optical sensing techniques. Subsequently, Brendan worked as a postdoc at the University of Toronto, developing a scalable platform technology for rapid, point-of-need biosensing. Brendan co-founded a spin-off company, Micromensio, based on that work. Brendan joined ABR to develop highly efficient AI microchips that will change what's possible at the edge.
