Kamila Thompson

Curriculum Designer

Kamila (she/her) is a PhD student in Electrical Engineering and Master of Public Policy student at Stanford University. Her work under Paul George, MD, PhD in the Neurology and Neurological Sciences department uses electrical stimulation, conductive polymers, and neural stem cells as a therapy for stroke. The aim of her work is to understand exactly how electrical stimulation affects dying neural cells while further developing a device to provide that stimulation to rat models. At the same time, Kamila hopes to use her public policy degree to increase access to emerging medical technologies and work to propose new avenues for the regulation of emerging science technology. Kamila graduated from The Ohio State University in May 2022 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, was the President of the Ohio State National Society of Black Engineers chapter and was a founding member of an organization for Black and Brown women in STEM. At Stanford, she is an active member of the Stanford Science Policy Group and joined the Peer Learning Consultant Program as a Curriculum Developer to aid in her future goals of staying in academia and becoming a professor. She is very grateful for her time as a Peer Learning Consultant and will take the skills she learned with her throughout
