Chang S. Nam is a Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at North Carolina State University. He is also an associated faculty in the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering as well as the Department of Psychology. Previously he was an Assistant Professor and an Associate Professor at the University of Arkansas. He has received the NSF CAREER Award (2010), Outstanding Researcher Award (2010-2011), and Best Teacher Award (2010-2011). He is a recipient of the 2018 US Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship Program (AFSFFP) Award and the 2019 Leland S. Kollmorgen Spirit of Innovation Award from the HFES Augmented Cognition TG. Dr. Nam teaches and conducts basic and applied research in human factors and ergonomics engineering to advance the science of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with a broad perspective on the application of systems and information engineering to human-centered technologies, including brain-computer interfaces and rehabilitation engineering. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), and the Laboratory for Analytic Sciences (LAS), UNC/NCSU Rehabilitation Engineering Center (REC). He is the main editor (with Drs. Nijholt and Lotte) of “Brain-Computer Interfaces Handbook: Technological and Theoretical Advances,” published by CRC Press. Currently, Nam serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Brain-Computer Interfaces. For more details, refer to Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Lab.
