Dr Sung Wook Chung, Data Scientist and Analytics Engineer

Dr Sung Wook Chung is a Data Scientist and Analytics Engineer at the Bionics Institute working under the Data Analytics pillar led by Dr Gautam Balasubramanian.

Sung graduated with a PhD in neuroscience from Monash University. His research involved optimisation of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques in the frontal part of the brain which has clinical implications in cognitive and mental disorders.

He has developed a novel method of personalised application that is being investigated in clinical trials nationally and internationally.

Sung has published over 15 scientific journal articles, and one of his publications was featured on the cover of Human Brain Mapping journal.

He took a hiatus from neuroscience research and went into big data analytics in education.

Dr Chung developed data processing and analysis pipelines for one of the most successful projects at the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL).

He has also been involved in an open-source blockchain project where he received various fundings from the foundation.

Sung will be working across different teams at the Bionics Institute and is very excited about neuroscience data analytics.
