Erin Gallivan is a Clinical Neurotechnology Research Assistant in the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital. Erin is currently responsible for collecting primary research data by running sessions participants enrolled in the BrainGate2 pilot clinical trial. She joined the BrainGate team in 2010, working to develop and test novel neurotechnologies to help people with neurologic disease, injury, or limb loss as a member of the clinical team under Leigh Hochberg, M.D., Ph.D.
Erin received her B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Boston University in 2007, graduating cum laude and a member of the Tau Beta Pi and Pi Tau Sigma honor societies. Before her work with the BrainGate2 research team, she was a mechanical design engineer at Raytheon, working on ground based radar systems. After two years at Raytheon, Erin went on to work as a data specialist for one year in the bone-marrow transplant department at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Erin recently finished a pre-medical post-baccalaureate program and expects to pursue her M.D. in the near future.Research supported by:
