James Jun worked in the Center for Computational Mathematics (CCM) from 2018 to 2020 as a research scientist, where he focused on spike sorting and algorithm benchmarking based on ground truth (SpikeForest). Currently, James is an applied research scientist at Meta Reality Labs, developing products based on EMG neuromotor interface.
Jun worked as a postdoctoral associate at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus and participated in the Neuropixels consortium, which developed large-scale, all-integrated silicon probe recording systems. Jun engineered surgical implantation procedures, a recording system, and the data-analysis pipeline to guide key design choices in the development of Neuropixels probes. Jun will be working on improved spike sorting software for large-scale datasets.
