Assistant Professor
Rice University

Caleb Kemere is an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and holds an adjunct appointment as Assistant Professor, Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Kemere’s lab focuses on designing systems to interact with complex neural circuits in vivo in behaving rodents in order to explore how information is processed, stored, and retrieved in both healthy brains and in models of human neurological diseases and disorders. The lab’s main two focus areas are memory and deep brain stimulation, funded by HFSP Young Investigator and NSF CAREER and EAGER awards. Dr. Kemere received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering and B.A. in Economics from University of Maryland, College Park in 1998. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2000 and 2006, respectively. Before joining the Rice faculty in 2011, Dr. Kemere was a Sloan-Swartz and Helen Hay Whitney postdoctoral fellow at the Keck Center for Integrative Neurosciences at UCSF.
