Prior to medical school, Dr. Chi completed both an undergraduate and graduate program in biomedical engineering at Arizona State University, which focused on neuromechanical control. His current research is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with traumatic injuries with an emphasis on motor control. One such effort involves a non-invasive solution for robotic control for quadriplegic individuals; Dr. Chi is developing a system to allow patients to perform activities of daily living using eye control.
