Chen Graduate Fellow
Sabera seeks to understand how the brain relies on various electrical and chemical feedback signals to influence learning and memory. She was most recently at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub where she established the neuroengineering research initiatives and conceived the Biohub's first Neuroengineering Symposium. Sabera graduated from Stanford with two Bachelors of Science with Honors in electrical engineering and biochemistry. While at Stanford, she explored how fruit flies learn visual memories with Professor Tom Clandinin, published her electrostatic precipitator work with Professor Juan Rivas at IEEE COMPEL, and implemented a neuropmorphic model on Neurogrid with Professor Kwabena Boahen. Outside of research, Sabera also enjoys making systems to help people in third world countries. For example, she created, built and deployed water purification systems in daycares for street children in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
