Robert J. Gougelet

I am a doctoral candidate in cognitive science at UC San Diego, with an eclectic research background true to my field. I use a multimodal approach of combined human electrophysiology, neuroimaging, and motion capture, to understand cognition and the brain+body. Ultimately I wish to leverage this understanding in the design of neuroergonomic interfaces and environments. My dissertation focuses on characterizing the representational/algorithmic properties of neural oscillations in transforming sensory information into action, especially from memory. I have interned at NASA Langley Research Center and Jet Propulsion Laboratory using human biological signals in novel ways, with a scope towards adaptive manned flight systems. My most recent project was NSF funded and involved neuroergonomic multimodal neuroimaging during an aviation pursuit task to investigate the role of neural oscillations in online sensorimotor integration. In my spare time, I am using contextual design inquiry to develop a mobile interface for clinicians to diagnose body posture deformities and prescribe 3D orthopedic corrective shapes. My hobbies include meditation, acoustic/electronic music, classically trained and contemporary dance, and martial arts.
