Student Profile: Nicole Rafidi
Working on the Photonic Neuron Project led by Professor Paul Prucnal. The project seeks to enable ultrafast computing by using nonlinear optical devices to imitate neurons. These neurons perform computation on laser pulses that encode information.
Earned certificates in neuroscience, robotics, applications in computing, and engineering biology.
“It’s a nice marriage of my interests in electrical engineering and neuroscience.”
Marching band, including serving as president and previously as leader of the drum section.
