Biography

My training in computer software programming, electrical engineering and neuroscience has been a perfect combination that has allowed me to contribute to the neurophysiological investigation of the healthy and affected human brain. My neuroscience research training over the last 10 years has been targeted to learning and developing state-of-the-art signal processing techniques for extracting, visualizing and analyzing neurophysiology signals, prospectively as well as in real-time. Such methods for interfacing the brain and computer allow us to build systems for monitoring, assessing, communicating with and even training the underlying cortical circuitry, with immediate feedback.

I have moved laterally—across various modalities of brain signals—non-invasive as well as invasive: electrical, magnetic and imaging signals. I have also moved vertically—across various cortical systems and disorders—movement intention, movement execution, attention and auditory processing applied in epilepsy, cerebral palsy as well as ‘normal’ brain. Each project has added to my understanding of the working of the human brain, and sharpened my skills for unraveling complex information from the weak biological signals.
