I am interested in finding out how brain controls movements, how plasticity leads to various types of learning.
- Clinically, I meet with persons with movement disorders / impairments to understand their lives and acquire data.
- Theoretically, I model the mechanism for such healthy / abnormal movements.
- As an engineer, I build virtual and mechanical environments to emulate the dysfunctional movement.
- As a data scientist, I analyze the data to classify, learn and predict the patterns for diagnosis, prescription of rehabilitative works needed.
- Brain Computer interface / Body-Machine interface (BCI / BoMI)
- Myoelectric control of prosthetics
- Prototyping electronic system
- Multi-scale modeling and simulation of biological system
- Machine Learning application to neural data
- To understand how brain works, how it breaks, in the framework of sensorimotor control, memory and learning, to develop rehab strategies
- To study the effect of bio/neural feedbacks in rehabilitation
- Assessment of artificial neural stimulation to elicit artificial sensation
- Development / assessment of assistive device in rehabilitation engineering
- Neuromorphic engineering for advanced robotics
- Locomotive movement science (kinematics / kinetics)
