brain, biology, biophysics, computational neuroscience, brain-comp interface
Here's my background:
Completing an engineering M.S. this year. I've done a lot of programming and building systems of ode/pde, neural networks, finite & discrete element models, hydraulic networks.
I like coding and computer models very much. My problem is the research topics are uninspiring...mostly mechanical engineering applications looking at strengths, stresses, displacements, pressures, etc.
I really want to work in more dynamic systems. I dream of exploring modeling and engineering in biology...but unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to take a bio-related course in university yet.
Something that really interests me are ways of getting a computer model and real physical system to communicate, perhaps by multielectrode array, MEM swarm, new imaging technique, etc.
But these are just dreams right now...so I need some practical guidance on what is out there and where to start. Thank you in advance.

why don't you look into Brain Imaging? It's typically research that's done within the context Biomedical Engineering.
Some of the research can involve modelling Brain function.
A lack of biology background can be excused as one typically focuses on the engineering part of it and the knowledge gaps can be filled in with time.
