Research Scientist

Fady Shibata-Alnajjar

Fady Shibata-Alnajjar fady-mail

Fady S. Alnajjar is a research scientist at the Intelligent Behavior Control Unit, BSI, RIKEN. He received an M.S. degree from the Department of Human and Artificial Intelligence System at the University Of Fukui, Japan (2007), and a Dr. Eng. degree in System Design Engineering from the same university in 2010. Over the past 3 years, he was interested in brain modeling in aim to understand higher-order cognitive mechanisms. Recently, he started to study motor learning and adaptation from the sensory and muscle synergies perspective in order to suggest practical applications for neural-rehabilitations.

Alvaro Costa Garcia

Alvaro Costa Garcia

ÁLvaro Costa García is a research scientist at the Intelligent Behavior Control Unit, BSI, RIKEN. He received M.S. degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the Systems Engineering and Automation Department at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche, Spain (2013). He obtained a PhD in the Program on Industrial and Telecommunications Technology from the same university in 2016. During the PhD, his research was focussed on lower limb rehabilitation methods and the study of cognitive mechanisms related to gait through the evaluation of electroencephalographic signals. Recently, he has started studying cortico-muscular coherences in order to develop more efficient neuro rehabilitation techniques.
