I am a researcher at Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering, working on translating movement intentions of patients into actions using brain signals. I'm curently a NeuroAI Group Leader and the Principal Investigator of an upperlimb BCI project, Synapsuit.

I'm interested in discovering informative patterns from brain signals using a data-driven approach. I design and apply real-time machine learning algorithms for decoding brain signal patterns of motor-impaired patients and help them regain motor control or communicate. My educational background is in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

I have previously worked with Prof. Grégoire Courtine, Prof. Jocelyne Bloch and Prof. José Millán at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) and Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV). I was advised by Prof. Yiannis Demiris and Prof. Tae-Kyun Kim while doing my PhD at Imperial College London.

Whenever I have free time, I work on music production. They can be found at SoundCloud. I occasionally take photographs, which can be found at my web gallery.
