The primary responsibility of this role is to deliver on a research project in the area of Brain Computer Interface funded by the Ministry of Education where you will be a key member of the research team to develop a Non-Invasive Closed-loop Brain Computer Interface for Decoding and Control of Motor Imagery Kinematics.

Key Responsibilities

  • Actively participate in the execution of the research project with the Principal Investigator (PI), Co-PIs and the research team members to ensure all project deliverables are met.
  • Support the development of novel signal processing and machine learning methods for Brain Computer Interface (BCI)-based motor imagery kinematics decoding.
  • Development of real-time Electroencephalogram (EEG) data processing architecture and associated Software.
  • Development of the experimental paradigm and graphical user interface for Motor Imagery-speed decoding the speed-Error-related Potential detection.
  • Integration of the Motor Imagery direction and speed decoder with the Error-related potential detector.
  • Conducting BCI studies on healthy subjects as well as stroke patients in the hospital.
  • Work together with a team of researchers to implement and test the BCI system, and also to evaluate the effectiveness of the system.
  • Publish research findings in reputable journals and present at conferences and workshops.
