My current work focuses on applying sensor technologies such as electrophysiology and eye-tracking for studying mental fatigue, attention, and information processing.

I am interested in two types of electrophysiological measurements. 1) Electrocardiography (ECG) and 2)Electroencephalography (EEG). My current work includes EEG as a method for assessing neuropsychological activity. I am focused on changes in EEG activity related to mental fatigue, attention allocation, and language processing.

Also, I am interested in various methods of EEG signal analysis, such as event-related (ERP) analysis and time-frequency (TF) analysis. Furthermore, I am interested in using electrophysiological data to develop models for detecting different levels of alertness.

In addition to neuropsychological processing, I am also interested in their behavioural correlates. To investigate this, I am implementing the eye-tracking methodology for assessing eye movements and fixations to study visual attention, cognitive load, and distraction.

Additionally, I am involved in implementing research findings and generating guidelines for product development. Besides, I am curious to analyze human-system interactions and their influence on human behaviour.
