Kevin Bui

PhD, BE '21 - Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer, Selera Medical

Kevin is currently an Innovation Fellow at Stanford Biodesign, a health technology innovation training program. He completed his PhD at Penn (BE ’21) in the Rehabilitation Robotics Lab with Dr. Michelle Johnson. His research combined robotics, cognitive neuroscience, and rehabilitation engineering to develop novel robot-based tools for cognitive and motor assessment in a variety of neurologic diseases, such as HIV and stroke. These tools have been deployed in various countries around the world, including a chance to spend 4 months in Botswana through the Botswana-UPenn Partnership. Kevin’s other roles at Penn included being a Graduate Associate at Lauder College House and working at the Center for Healthcare Innovation. Prior to Penn, Kevin studied bioengineering at Stanford, where he did research in mild traumatic brain injury in Dr. David Camarillo’s lab.
