Categories: Alumni

Dr. Khadka is a post-doctoral fellow at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He received his BE (2014) and PhD (2020) in Biomedical Engineering from the City University of New York. His research has concentrated on non-invasive and invasive modalities of electrical stimulation on both human and animal, primarily focusing on computational studies to explain the experiment. Dr. Khadka has 10+ years of experience in bench-top electrode and device testing, in vitro invasive brain stimulation studies (SCS and DBS), human and small animal tDCS experiments, and computational modeling of brain and spinal cord stimulation. Moreover, Dr. Khadka also reviews for >10 peer reviewed neuromodulation journals and serves as a guest editor for Frontiers in Neuroergonomics journal. Currently, Dr. Khadka is involved more into clinical studies with non-invasive electrical stimulation that involve analysis of EMG data acquired during TMS and development of E-field models of ECT and TMS for healthy and disease brain. In addition, Dr. Khadka is also collaborating with Dr. Marom Bikson (PhD advisor) on projects such as Adaptive ECT model, Radiofrequency ablation of peripheral nerve for pain management, High-density SCS, and Neurocapillary-modulation.
