Dr. Doug Weber joined DARPA as a Program Manager in 2013.
His research interests are in the field of neural engineering, specifically: neural interface systems and how to apply these technologies to acquiring and decoding neural signals for controlling assistive and prosthetic devices; and neural stimulation technologies for restoring or retraining sensory, motor and autonomic functions.
Dr. Weber came to DARPA from the University of Pittsburgh, where he was an Associate Professor in the Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He also served the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as a Research Biomedical Engineer in the VA Pittsburgh Health System.
Dr. Weber is a member of the Society for Neuroscience and a senior member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and has mentored several undergraduate and graduate students in bioengineering, medical students and postdoctoral fellows.
He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Milwaukee School of Engineering and Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Bioengineering from Arizona State University. He completed post-doctoral training in the Centre for Neuroscience at the University of Alberta.
