Biography: 

I am Emmanuel K. Kalunga, a PhD candidate, in a joint doctorate program between the Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin (France), and the Tshwane University of Technology (SouthAfrica).
On completion of my Bachelor degree (Cum Laude) in 2010 at the Tshwane University, I was awarded the Mandela Rhodes Scholarship and pursued a double Masters degree (Mtech/Msc) in Control, Image and Signal processing at the same university.
I graduated Cum Laude in September 2013 after spending a year of internship at the Laboratoire d’ingénierie des systèmes de Versailles (France).
Since January 2014, I am enrolled for my PhD on the topic of “Pattern recognition techniques for implicit brain computer interfaces”, under the supervision of Karim Djouani, Eric Monacelli, Sylvain
Chevallier, and Yskandar Hamam.

I am passionate about Machine learning, data science and Brain Computer Interfaces, and would like to go further in these fields.
