Matthew completed his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. During his undergraduate studies, he wrote undergraduate thesis on algebraic topology. Later, he studied hearing using electrophysiological and psychophysical techniques. At Boston University, he developed algorithms for decoding the spatial location of audio-visual attention using electroencephalography (EEG) and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) neuroimaging technologies, which was intended to address the need of people with hearing loss, ADHD, autism or other people who struggled in cocktail party scenario. Matthew is expected to contribute to the development of biomedical signal processing and machine learning algorithms for various projects at BA-CNBS.
