Gabriel Albors is the Managing Director for the Center of Implantable Devices (CID) at the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering. Gabriel received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez and his M.S. degree from Purdue University. While in Puerto Rico his focused on the development of acoustic propagation models for intravascular sensor implementation. At Purdue he created computer models to understand the device performance on the neural systems and developed such devices.
Today at the CID Gabriel plays a central management role coordinating research, shared resources and outreach interactions with industry, collaborators and grant programs. As part of the CID Gabriel’s research focuses on in-vivo studies, custom application specific integrated circuits/systems, electronic hardware assembly/testing and advanced packaging. Gabriel also oversees the development of system-level solutions to particular medical problems such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and chronic neural interface problems.
