Jae Moon

Graduate Student

PhD Candidate
Biomedical Engineering, University of Toronto
Advisor: Dr. Tom Chau


Jae has a background in life sciences, with a specialization in neuroscience. During his undergraduate studies, he gained in experience in different areas of research, but realized that he wanted to do research with more pragmatic outcomes.

Research Interests

Jae is interested in combining neuroscience with linguistics for brain-computer interface (BCI) development, which would be a practical application of neurolinguistic theories. He hopes to create an intuitive, easy-to-use speech-decoding BCI. Specifically, the system would have a multi-class classifier that would be trained on EEG data while user engagement is passive, which differs from the conventional method of repeating phrases over multiple trials. Hopefully, the method will hasten the process of training the system and increase accessibility for those with speech-motor impairments.

Other Interests

Jae has a deep interest in fractals, multi-fractals and their applications, not just in EEG, but in our general surroundings. He wants to try and simulate the development of the central nervous system using fractal math. Jae enjoys watching soccer, and is a fan of FC Barcelona. In his free time, Jae likes writing, drawing and doing abstract art on Photoshop, and is currently the lead editor at INKspire.
