|BrainGate Turning Thought into Action|
Sung-Phil Kim is a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University. He is working in the BrainGate Neural Interface System research team, with a specific focus on decoding of neural activity to enable the control of communication tools and prosthetic devices in humans with paralysis. He joined Brown University in September 2005 as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Computer Science, working with Michael Black, John Donoghue and Leigh Hochberg. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida in 2005. He worked as a research assistant in the Computational NeuroEngineering Laboratory under the supervision of Jose Principe. His doctoral research was the comparative analysis and development of decoding algorithms for brain-machine interfaces in non-human primates. He received a B.S. in Engineering from Seoul National University (Seoul, Korea) in 1994 and worked in the Division of Computer Network at Comtec Systems, Inc. (Seoul, Korea) from 1994 to 1997.
