About Me


I am a fast-track PhD student in computational neuroscience at GSN-LMU and I am currently in the preparatory year prior to my PhD phase.

Before that, I obtained my bachelor's degree in psychology at the University of Amsterdam after my transferring from Beijing Normal University. During my undergraduate period, I completed a research project where I was trying to decode visual experience from EEG data using MVPA and comparing the performance of two preprocessing methods (high-pass filtering and detrending). In another internship, I investigated the Bayesian model comparison method and showed the intransitivity in the Leave-One-Out Cross-Validation (LOO-CV) method.

Education


University of Munich
  Fast-Track Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience    Oct. 2020 - present

University of Amsterdam
   B.S. in Psychology                Sep. 2018 - Aug. 2020

Research Interests


I joined the Neural Dynamics of Visual Cognition Lab in September 2020 as a research intern to work on a collaborative project with Prof. Radoslaw Martin Cichy and Prof. Gemma Roig. My research interest lies in how machine learning can help understand visual processing. Specifically, I am comparing the performance of different machine learning models in predicting brain data (e.g. EEG, MEG, and fMRI).

Skills


Python(good), R(good), MATLAB(familiar).

Hobbies


In my free time, I am obsessed with road cycling. I also like weight training, bouldering and running.
