Research Areas and Interests

Computational Neuroscience, Brain Computer Interface, Systems Biology, Biomedical and Neural Signal Processing, Machine Learning, Pattern Recognition and  Bioinformatics. A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is of great benefit to the differently abled, as it allows those with restricted freedom of movement to perform various actions which enable them to live an uncompromised, independent life. Such BCIs are possible by capturing and analysing electroencephalography (EEG) based potential responses to various stimuli. BCIs can be used for a host of activities, including cursor control, with spellers, to control wheelchairs and for home automation and control of various devices. A novel BCI-based home automation system and smart wheel chair that works with two responses - Steady State Visually Evoked Potential (SSVEP) and the eye-blink artifact. These two responses together facilitate a robust and efficient system that can serve the largest section of society to varying degrees.
