Affiliated institution

Dr. Francesco Tenore is a senior staff engineer whose research focuses on the development and testing of next-generation closed-loop invasive neural interfaces for control and perception of upper-extremity anthropomorphic devices and nonanthropomorphic systems. Dr. Tenore has extensive experience in advancing these technologies through federal and institutional regulatory approvals, including FDA Investigational Device Exemptions.

His team recently implanted and tested the world’s first bilateral and bidirectional invasive brain interface for bilateral control of advanced upper-extremity prosthetics.

Additional areas of expertise include human-artificial intelligence teaming, intelligent systems, myoelectric signal decoding, and neural decoding and encoding algorithms.
