RESEARCHER PROFILE

PhD Student


Kevin completed his Bachelor of Advanced Science at UNSW in 2016, which included an honours project investigating non-invasive methods of delivering tactile information to provide sensory feedback.  He is now working on his PhD project with Dr Birznieks and Dr Vickery, commenced 2017, investigating the encoding of tactile information in the firing patterns of single and population of tactile neurons.  His studies combine electrophysiology and behavioural experiments.

CURRENT PROJECTS

Information encoding by temporal structure of afferent spike trains

Our ability to sense, discriminate and interpret vibrotactile stimuli underpins some of the most crucial functions of the human hand that relate to object exploration and manipulation. This project has one branch focusing on prosthetic development of a non-invasive prosthetic system that can restore tactile perception in patients and potentially could be used in brain-machine interfaces (BMIs).
