Dayo Adewole (they/them or he/him) is a Nigerian-American postdoctoral researcher at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center and University of Pennsylvania. As a neural tissue engineering researcher, they design & develop living, light-controlled neural networks as (1) a model for complex brain pathways and (2) an implantable neural input, with a long-term focus on the development of biological neuroprosthetic devices. Their experience broadly spans bioengineering and robotics—primarily additive manufacturing (3D-printing), the design and fabrication of mechatronic systems, and brain-computer interfaces—and he has trained and served as an educator in several undergraduate and graduate-level engineering courses. Alongside their research and teaching, they designed the core technology for and co-founded InstaHub, a sustainability-focused startup developing easy-to-install embedded sensor systems to help track energy use & reduce waste in buildings.
