Keywords: Diffuse optical imaging, Functional neuroimaging, Brain computer interface, Multimodal neuroimaging, clinical applications of functional neuroimaging, Source localization & causality estimation.

Areas of interests:

  • Diffuse optical imaging towards tissue imaging, especially in breast cancer & brain mapping
  • Functional neuroimaging with MEG, EEG, fMRI, NIRS, and ECoG
  • Clinical applications of functional neuroimaging, especially in epilepsy
  • Brain signal analysis – Development of methods for source localization & causality estimation
  • Multimodal neuroimaging integrating fMRI and EEG/MEG
  • Brain computer interface – pattern classification and algorithm development
  • Design and implementation of biomedical instruments (Portable NIR Handheld scanner system, multi-channel transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) system, 8-ch portable EEG system, sound recognition system)

Current Research interests (2012)

 My current research interests are in diffuse optical imaging towards tissue imaging via portable optical devices and application of NIRS towards brain mapping and connectivity studies.
