Christopher Moore ’24 — the URECA Researcher of the Month for June — is a biomedical engineering major in the Honors College whose research under the mentorship of Wei Lin, associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was funded by URECA in Summer 2021. Moore recently had the distinction of publishing his research on “FPGA Correlator for Applications in Embedded Smart Devices” in the open-access journal Biosensors as the first author: he was involved in all aspects of the project, from designing hardware and testing on a real FPGA chip to drafting and revising the manuscript. He is also a member of a Vertically-Integrated Project (VIP) team on Bioengineering Application, Education and Research (BEAR) led by Mei Lin Chan, assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. He aspires to be a physician-scientist.
Moore’s passion for electronics, coding and engineering research was stimulated in 2018 while he was a high school student participant in the Computer Science and Informatics Research Experiences (CSIRE) summer program at Stony Brook University directed by Dr. Fusheng Wang (Computer Science), and was assigned to work in the Mobile Computing and Application Lab of Dr. Fan Ye (Electrical & Computer Engineering). Christopher Moore is a graduate of Ward Melville High School in East Setauket; his hobbies include piano, violin, bike riding, and badminton.
