Co-Director Center for Advanced Neurological Engineering, UCSD

Tzyy-Ping Jung is currently the Co-Director of Center for Advanced Neurological Engineering, Associate Director of the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience and an Adjunct Professor of Department of Bioengineering at University of California San Diego, CA, USA. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Department of Electrical Engineering and Department of Computer Science at National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan. In addition, he is an Adjunct Professor at School of Precision Instrument and Opto-electronic Engineering, Tianjin University, Tianjin, China.

Dr. Jung established transformative techniques for applying blind source separation to decompose multichannel EEG/MEG/ERP and fMRI data and was elevated to an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to blind source separation for biomedical applications in 2015. Dr. Jung has also developed wearable sensing systems with dry and non-prep bio-potential sensors, online real-time signal processing and artifact correction on smartphones or mobile devices. The revolutionary design allows assessment of neural, physiological and behavioral data of participants actively performing ordinary tasks in natural body positions and situations in real-world environments.

Dr. Jung’s research emphasis has been placed on the integration of the cognitive sciences, basic and clinical neuroscience, and bioengineering.  Dr. Jung’s work is truly interdisciplinary. He has published many well-cited articles in the prestigious scientific journal such as SciencePNAS, PLoS Biology, andJ. Neurosciences, engineering journals such as Proceedings of the IEEE, IEEE Trans Biomed. Eng., and clinical journals such as European J. Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and JAMA Ophthalmology.
