My research focuses on making motor, cognitive and social skills easily acquirable by using advancements in technology. Learning to speak a new language, operating a machine or overcoming a trauma might all benefit from systems such as virtual reality training or receiving feedback through brain-computer interfaces.
By identifying common needs of learning requirements, we hope to overcome the difficulties in educational activities for everyone through interdisciplinary research including engineering, physchology and education sciences.
