Research interests

I specialize in the design and implementation of closed-loop EEG-based brain-machine interface systems, integrated with transcranial electrostimulation techniques such as tDCS and tACS. My academic journey includes earning an MSc in Computer Science and Engineering followed by a PhD in Electronic Engineering from two different universities in a beautiful coastal city, Busan, South Korea. Throughout my career, I've held positions as a visiting scholar at UC San Francisco in the United States and as an assistant research professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China.

Currently, I serve as an impact acceleration fellow, leading an MRC-funded research project on VR motion sickness mitigation at the intersection of the School of Psychology and Neuroscience and the School of Computing Science. With numerous scientific articles to my credit, I've also contributed as a chief scientific advisor for a brain science startup company based in China. My insights and research have garnered attention from prominent media outlets including the Korean Yonhap News Agency, Shanghai Education TV programs as well as Scottish The Scotsman and www.scotland.org/study

Driven by a passion to bridge neuroscience with immersive technology, my research vision is to pioneer advancements that optimize brain and human function in real-world contexts.
