Dr. Kang earned a master’s degree with a concentration in biomechanics at the Kyungpook National University. He received his Ph. D. degree with a concentration in behavioral science at the University of Florida in August 2015. During his doctoral program, he focused on mechanisms underlying stroke motor recovery and force control capabilities.

Research Interests
Dr. Kang is interested in investigating structural and functional brain activity and behavioral deficits in individuals with spinocerebellar ataxia type 6, essential tremor, and chronic stroke using a multimodal imaging approach and analyses on force and neural activation of muscles.
