Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

I majored in Computer Science when I was in undergraduate course and received a Master degree in Brain and Cognitive engineering. During my master's research, I had experienced deep learning and applied it to functional MRI. Now I am working with Dr. Frank Tong at Vanderbilt University. I felt fascinated by various machine learning and deep learning techniques including convolutional neural network, recurrent neural network, reinforcement learning, and optimization theory. Also, I am very interested in visual mechanisms in the brain such as object recognition, visual memory and attention, and brain decoding. My research goal is to combine both fields to have a comprehensive understanding of the visual system.
