Mr. Sujoy Ghosh Hajra is currently the Chief Technology Officer of Surrey NeuroTech Lab.
He has a background in both Computer and Biomedical Engineering, and is involved in the development of diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for various brain diseases and disorders. Prior to this, he worked at the National Research Council Canada, where he played a vital role in the development of several breakthrough medical technologies, such as the NeuroTouch and the Halifax Consciousness Scanner.
The NeuroTouch is a simulator device that was used in the world’s first patient-specific virtual neurosurgery in 2010, while the Halifax Consciousness Scanner is a portable device for monitoring “brain vital signs” that facilitates ease-of-use and rapid application. He has co-authored several peer-reviewed publications and has been the recipient of several awards in recent years, such as the Top Twenty 20-somethings in Nova Scotia, the C.D. Nelson Memorial Scholarship, Provost Prize of Distinction and the Computer World Canada’s IT Leadership Award.
In 2014, Sujoy Ghosh Hajra (and Careesa Liu) pitched their Surrey Collaborative Outreach and Research Experience (SCORE) at the inaugural SFU Surrey—Central City Community Engagement competition—and received $5,000 from Central City’s property management company, Blackwood Partners, to help implement their idea.
