Amy Orsborn, the Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Bioengineering, is one of the three UW faculty members chosen to be a part of the inaugural cohort of the Washington Research Foundation – Ronald S. Howell Distinguished Faculty Fellowship. This endowed fellowship is designed to support early-career faculty members with a research emphasis on neuroscience-related fields.

Orsborn leads the aoLab, which focuses on developing therapeutic neural interfaces and advancing new fundamental knowledge on neural circuits and learning mechanisms. She is also a champion for diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives in STEM fields, reflected in her ongoing work with the Women in Science and Engineering program and her role as a co-founder of the Women in Neural Engineering group.
