Jean D. Louis

University of Florida PhD Student



I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida in Computer Engineering. I am now pursuing my PhD in computer science at the University of Florida. under Dr. Juan Gilbert in the Human Experience Research Lab. In 2019 I became a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and GEM fellow . My research interest includes Brain computer interfaces, Human computer/robotic interaction, and the Internet of Things .


From a very Young age I have been realy passionate about technology. I grew up taking things aprt across the house to discover how they worked which led me to engineer.

Brain Dron Race

The Brain drone race was the worlds first competition of its kind. It used the engagement levels of each player, as measured by a Brain Computer Interface device, and pushes a drone forward. After being part of the team the first year, I was the team Leader of 9 undergarduite student to help put on the worlds second ever Brain Drone race the following year.


I gained a passion for IoT and wanted to teach other students about the coolness of IoT. I partnered with the National Society of Black engineers gator chapter and produced a 3 part hands on workshop series on IoT.
