To be an integral contributor to the neuro-technological revolution and act as an architect for the posthuman era and thereby improving human life.
Athul Sudheesh is a neuroengineer and a researcher. He was born and brought up in the southernmost state of India, Kerala. He earned a bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering and is currently pursuing master's in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Dallas.
Athul's dad Dr. K Sudheesh Kumar was a professor and the head of department of chemistry at SN College, Varkala. Dr.K's research was mostly done in polymer photochemistry.
During Athul's undergrad studies, he met Allan and collaborated with him to bring life to many breakthrough innovations which till then were considered to be impossible by his peers and advisers. This friendship later led to the formation of Dionz Electronics, a company that was envisioned to bring Li Fi, the next generation communication technology, to the marketplace. Despite having a momentous start and being rated as the top 5 campus startups in the state, the company failed to take off in the right direction.
These days Athul focuses most of his time in learning human brain and in his research on brain computer interfaces. He also enjoys exploring the philosophy of the mind. All his neuroscience related articles can be read at Neuroage | In Quest of Deciphering the Mind
