Gi-Yeul Bae

Asst Professor
TEMPE Campus


Gi-Yeul Bae is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University. Bae earned a doctorate at Johns Hopkins University and completed a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California, Davis. During his doctoral and postdoctoral training, Bae has developed an EEG-based decoding method that can be used to track visual information stored in the brain with high temporal resolution. He also developed a computational model that demonstrates combined influence of categorical and metric information to high-level visual representations. In the lab, Bae investigates how the brain creates/maintains visual representation of the world and use them to achieve given task goals in an efficient and useful manner.
