·fMRI Decoding Method
-My current main research interest is in development of machine learning algorithm especially for fMRI decoding.
-Especially, I am currently focusing on feature selection problem; how to choose a small set of voxels that maximize.
-I also interested in the transfer learning; how to use the other subjects’ data to train the decoder.

·Human Motor Control
-My neuroscientific interest is in how human select and execute an appropriate action in the relationship with environement; objects.
-Especially, using decoding technique, I am trying to decode human motor intention before actual action execution.
-I am also interested in individual difference of how to use the brain during performing action.
