Scott F. Lempka, PhD Assistant Professor

My name is Scott F. Lempka, PhD, and I am a biomedical engineer at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. My expertise is in the theoretical and experimental evaluation of neural stimulation and recording technologies. As a biomedical engineer, I have a particular interest in multidisciplinary translational research and direct clinical studies. I have more than a decade of experience in the experimental characterization of the interface between implanted neural stimulation and recording electrodes and the surrounding biological tissue. From this experimental knowledge, I have developed sophisticated computer models of neural stimulation and recording technologies to understand the origin of recorded biopotentials and investigate potential therapeutic mechanisms of neurostimulation therapies. My main research focus is the development of novel neuromodulation technologies for chronic pain management.
