Jorg obtained a Ph.D. at MIT, studying the potential of different semiconductor technologies for high frequency power applications. Before, he studied electrical engineering and computer science as an undergraduate at MIT, assisting with a diversity of analog device and microfabrication projects. While in the Boyden lab, he worked on novel microfabricated architectures for interfacing to the brain. He then went on to become the assistant director for user services for MIT.nano.
