Current Research

I’m interested in the problem of statistical learning, or the dynamical rule that shapes a complex system into representing a certain distribution. More specifically I’m interested in generative models and learning rules in spiking neural systems.


After high school education in Beijing, China, I attended UCSD and received BS degrees in Biophysics and Neuroscience. My undergraduate research experience in experimental biology and my interest in Cyber Punk culture and trans-humanism led me into a research direction at the intersection of Machine Learning and Neuroscience.
