Dr. Paul Marasco's Lab Staff
Zachary earned his M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2003. While there, his graduate work focused on bioelectronics.
In 2005 he joined Dr. John Stahl's lab at the Cleveland VA Medical Center's Ocular Motility Labratory as a research engineer. He studied eye-head coordination and saccade generation propensities in humans, and how they can be modified as a way to understand the underlying architecture of gaze control. In 2009 his work shifted to eye movement and neuron recordings in mice, studying the effect of aminopyridines on eye movements and cerebellar dysfunction in mice with cacna1a calcium channelopathies. Both human and mouse labs also included some work with downbeat nystagmus.
In 2013 he joined Dr. Marasco as a research engineer studying sensory integration with prosthetic limbs.
