Il (Memming) Park

Memming (PhD, University of Florida) joined The Center for Perceptual Systems as a postdoctoral fellow in August 2010. He works with Jonathan Pillow in the Neural Coding and Computation Lab. He is a computational neuroscientist trained in statistical signal processing, information theory, and machine learning (especially for spike trains). His main interests are focused on point process based analysis of spike trains from sensory, motor, as well as decision and learning process. He designs spike train kernels and associated machine learning algorithms for the analysis of neural code, and statistical test. Currently he is working on encoding/decoding analysis of spike trains from monkey lateral intraparietal neurons in collaboration with Alex Huk.
