I. Memming Park (박일) received a B.S. in computer science from KAIST in 2005. He received
an M.S. in electrical and computer engineering in 2007 and a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering
in 2010 from the University of Florida working with José C. Principe. He was a postdoctoral
fellow (2010-2014) at the University of Texas at Austin working with Jonathan Pillow,
before he joined the faculty of neurobiology and behavior at Stony Brook University
I am interested in how information is encoded as spatiotemporal patterns of neural activity, and how information is processed to perform specific computations within and across brain areas. For instance, I analyze how visual motion is represented by visual cortices, and how it is subsequently integrated over time to form decisions that are represented in higher order cortices. I collaborate with experimental neurophysiologists who record neural activities, and I model their data to find structures hidden in noisy observations; structures within the signals themselves, and to relate neural activity with external stimulus and behavior.
