Biography

Dr. Srinjoy Mitra received his B.S. degree in physics and electronics from Calcutta, India and his M.Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India. After spending a short time in the electronics industry he received his Ph.D. from the Institute of Neuroinformatics, ETH Zurich in 2004. During his PhD he worked on neuromorphic systems, a research track that uses state-of-the-art electronics technology to build artificial systems inspired by the brain. Between 2008 and 2010 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Baltimore, USA. At JHU he was part of a DARPA funded project that intended to provide sensory feedback to amputees with prosthetic limbs. He then joined the medical electronics team at IMEC, Belgium and worked there as a senior scientist until January 2016. At IMEC he had taken up lead roles in various industrial and public funded projects primarily related to bio-potential recording. Electro-encephalography (EEG) measurement ICs developed by him have been successfully validated in clinical environment and is now commercialized. For the last few years Dr. Mitra led multiple projects on neural implants for central and peripheral nervous system. This resulted in the development of generations of CMOS neural recording probes with the highest electrode density.
Dr. Mitra  joined as a faculty member in the Biomedical Engineering division at the University of Glasgow in 2016 and the moved to University of Edinburgh in 2018.  He has widely published in several prestigious conferences and journals.  He is also the co-inventor in 3 patent applications. He is the recipient of  Swiss National Science foundation (SNF) Prospective Researcher award in 2008.
