  • Neural Engineering: Acquisition, extraction, and classification of brain signals, namely EEG signals (P300, SSVEP,IM) for I/O and development. I am particularly interested on its theoretical aspect such as studying brain-computer interface design paradigms, signal processing, and classification methods. Also interested on the application aspect such as emotion recognition, disease diagnosis, stress relief applications, BCI spellers, cognitive enhancements.
  • Natural Language Processing: I am interesting in applying advanced deep learning techniques to model and understand human language. Text summarization, intent detection, social media analysis, stock prediction with news are among the many topics that I have engaged on.
