Leonardo Abdala Elias is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electronics and Biomedical Engineering, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Campinas (UNICAMP, Brazil). Also, he is an Associate Researcher and current Director of the Center for Biomedical Engineering, UNICAMP. He is the founder and current Head of the Neural Engineering Research Laboratory (NER Lab). His research in Neural Engineering focuses on theoretical/computational and experimental investigations that aimed at understanding how different elements of the neuromusculoskeletal system interact during normal and pathological control of human movement. Dr. Elias received the BS in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Goias (Goiania, Brazil) in 2008, and the MS and PhD in Biomedical Engineering both from the University of Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo, Brazil) in 2010 and 2013, respectively. He was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Biomedical Engineering Lab, University of Sao Paulo (2013-2014), and a Visiting Researcher at the Department of Neurorehabilitation Engineering, Georg-August University (Goettingen, Germany, 2015). He is member of the Society for Neuroscience, International MotoNeuron Society, and the Brazilian Society of Biomedical Engineering. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
