Mike Chi

Dr. Chi serves as the Chief Technology Officer at Cognionics, Inc. where he directs the development of dry/non-contact ECG and EEG systems. In the past year, his work has resulted in 5 patent applications covering mechanics, electronics and sensor materials. Dr. Chi has a track record of successfully managing research and development projects including serving as the PI on NASA and NIH-funded SBIR projects on dry electrode technology. In addition, Dr.Chi actively consults for university, government and commercial research groups in building portable, high-quality ECG/EEG sensors and systems. He is a graduate of Prof. Gert Cauwenberghs’ research group at UCSD and his Ph.D. thesis represented a fundamental improvement in the state of dry/non-contact biopotential sensors by introducing a custom integrated amplifier front-end that overcame many of the limitations previously encountered in the field. His research has produced numerous peer-reviewed research articles covering aspects of dry and mobile EEG technologies. Besides his work in bioinstrumentation, Dr. Chi is an experienced analog and mixed signal integrated circuits engineer. Prior to his current research, Dr. Chi successfully designed, fabricated and tested a custom high-speed CMOS image sensor and a low-power, high-resolution biomedical analog-to-digital converter.
