Principal Investigator

Jacek Dmochowski 
Jacek is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the City College of New York. He received his Ph.D. in telecommunications from the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (Montreal, Canada) in 2008, and was awarded the Canadian Governor General’s Academic Gold Medal.   Previously to joining the faculty at CCNY, he was a Research Associate in the lab of Anthony Norcia at Stanford University (2013-2015), and a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the lab of Lucas Parra at the City College of New York(2008-2013). CV

Post-Doctoral Fellows

The laboratory is recruiting a Post-Doctoral Fellow to lead one or more projects in decoding and stimulating the human brain.  Interested applicants should contact the PI with their CV, a statement of research interests, and the names and contact information of two references.


Ph. D. Students

Jason J. Ki
Jason is a PhD candidate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the City College of New York. His PhD work focuses on understanding how the brain processes its surrounding in “naturalistic” settings such as during movie viewing or video gameplay. His research couples deep learning and various statistical models to encode and decode neural activity to its surrounding.

Duc Nguyen
Duc is a PhD candidate whose research develops new techniques for non-invasively stimulating the brain using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in combination with EEG recordings.


Master’s Students

Prakhyat Singh
Prakhyat will be working towards understanding the effects of transcranial electrical stimulation on brain activity.



 Undergraduate Research Assistants

Christian Fong

Christian is engaged in research examining the effects of near-infrared laser stimulation on blood oxygenation in the brain.


Destiny Berisha

Destiny conducts research into understanding how the human brain processes natural stimuli, and how that processing can be modulated by non-invasive brain stimulation.
