School of EE,
I am an assistant professor of electrical engineering at KAIST where I lead Neuro-Instrumentation and Computational Analysis Lab. I received my Ph.D. from MIT EECS and I formerly worked as a postdoctoral associate at Synthetic Neurobiology Group (advisor Prof. Ed Boyden). My current research focus is on developing and applying optical and computational technologies for analyzing brain circuits.
My research background includes neuroengineering, optical instrumentation, computational analysis, machine learning, bio-signal processing and CMOS circuit design.
