Cognitive Engineering

Yu SUN, PhD

Yu SUN received the B. Eng. Degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), China in 2005 and Ph.D. degree in Electronic, Electrical & System Engineering from Loughborough University (LU), UK in 2011 and Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), China in 2012.

Currently, Yu SUN is a Research Fellow in the Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology (SINAPSE) at the National University of Singapore. His research interests are in neural signal processing, and neuroimage processing. In particular, he is interested in investigating the connectivity network patterns from different modalities at different cognitive or psychological states.
