Her work as the co-founder and CTO of Cortera Neurotechnologies originally focused on commercializing the work she developed as PhD student at Berkeley. Since then, Cortera has released several products, including arrays for subdural or epidural neural recordings and has developed systems that can be used to treat neuropsychiatric disorders such as Major Depressive Disorder and PTSD. But Cortera is looking to expand even further in the future. “We have been developing a medical device for neurological interfacing, but with a new clinical application,” says Muller. “We are looking forward to releasing our first clinical product and growing in that market.”
Muller, who is also an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the UC Berkeley, says that she’s excited to move Cortera into clinical technology. When asked about the most rewarding part of her job and work, she stated, “knowing that our device will transform patient care and improve quality of life for people with debilitating conditions and few options available to them today.”
