Matt Gaidica, Ph.D. is a fellow of the Academy of Bioastronautics performing postdoctoral research at the University of Michigan supported by TRISH and NASA. Gaidica’s primary research theme asks, how are challenges met?, with a focus on analog animal models and practical, high-tech countermeasures. His background in electrical engineering and neuroscience have led to breakthrough implantable devices to record freely-moving behavior and neurophysiology as well as novel machines in the laboratory to simulate microgravity exposure. Gaidica is an officer in the U.S. Air Force serving part-time as a reservist. He has a newly born son, a faithful Labrador retriever, and is located in Ann Arbor, MI.
