Emmanuel Kalunga SARChi PhD/Dtech student
Emmanuel K. Kalunga is a PhD candidate, in his first year, in the joint doctorate program between the Tshwane University of Technology (South Africa) and Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin, France. On completion of his Baccalaureus Technologiae (Cum Laude) in 2010 at the Tshwane University, Emmanuel was awarded the Mandela Rhodes Scholarship and pursued a double Masters degree (Mtech/Msc) in Control, Image and Signal processing at the same university on the topic “Development of brain computer interface (BCI) based intention detection approach for persons with limited neuro-muscular control”. He 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, Emmanuel is enrolled for his PhD on the topic of “Pattern recognition techniques for implicit brain computer interfaces”, under the supervision of Prof Karim Djouani, Prof Yskandar Hamam, Prof Ben Van Wyk, Prof Eric Monacelli, and Prof Sylvain Chevallier.
