Dr. Daniel Freeman is a technical staff member in the Advanced Materials and Microsystems Technologies Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. His current research interests include radio frequency signaling in the brain, novel architectures for low-noise electronic amplifiers, embedded fiber microelectronic systems, and ion micropropulsion systems.
Prior to joining Lincoln Laboratory, Freeman was a technical staff member at Draper Laboratory, where he developed a submillimeter, inductively powered neural stimulator and developed electromagnetic models for MEMS sensors and diamond vacuum transistors. Additionally, Freeman worked at Draeger/Siemens Medical, where he designed low-noise analog electronics for patient monitors.
Freeman received his PhD degree in biomedical engineering from Boston University in 2008, followed by postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard Medical School and MIT, where he developed novel methods of neural stimulation for retinal implants.
