About Chet Moritz, PhD

Chet Moritz received his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, studying the neuromechanics of human movement. A post-doc at the University of Colorado introduced him to the neural control of dexterous hand movements, while a second post-doc at the University of Washington began his interest in neural devices to treat paralysis.

He is now the CJ and Elizabeth Hwang endowed associate professor in the departments Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rehabilitation Medicine and Physiology & Biophysics at the University of Washington in Seattle. He also serves as the Co-director for the Center for Neurotechnology, an interdisciplinary group of engineers, neuroscientists, and clinicians. He and his research team focus on developing and testing novel technologies to restore movement and other functions after spinal cord injury.
