🌍 Research Interests

My research interests encompass a diverse range of interdisciplinary fields within neuroscience and biomedical informatics. I am particularly focused on the cortical tracking of speech and the development of innovative methods for removing EEG artifacts from ECG and EOG signals. My work involves creating hardware triggers that provide event timestamps for EEG apparatus during bilingual lexical access tasks. Additionally, I am dedicated to mapping topographic brain networks and analyzing neural connectivity between cortical regions during resting states and event-related potentials (ERP).

In my research, I aim to increase the temporal resolution of dynamic functional connectivity, which allows for sharper time-frequency resolution and the ability to track fast-dynamic brain connectivity changes. I have also introduced high-resolution EEG technology as a complement to MRI, aiding in the monitoring and quantifying of stroke patient recovery, alongside clinical stroke scales. Furthermore, I am applying deep learning techniques to brain tumor segmentation to identify similar patterns of connected brain regions and to pinpoint reliable biomarkers that characterize stroke recovery progress and predict outcomes.
