Personal profile

Biography

I am a neuroscientist and psychiatrist interested in brain function and its development. I use a rich combination of research tools, including functional neuroimaging techniques (e.g., magnetoencephalography-MEG), electrophysiology (electroencephalography-EEG), behavioural approach (e.g., eye-tracking), to study how the neural connectivity and brain network mature to support highly complex human perception and cognition.

I completed my Doctor of Medicine in Psychiatry at Zhejiang University in 2013 and finished PhD in Cognitive Science at Macquarie University in 2014. From 2014 to 2016 I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow with Distinguished Professor Stephan Crain and Associate Professor Blake Johnson at Macquarie University on projects using paediatric MEG system to study the development of language processing.

Since 2016, I took up a postdoctoral research fellowship at Macquarie University with Dr. Jon Brock and Associate Professor Paul Sowman. My current projects aim to answer research questions as to how children learn and predict the world through visual and auditory processing, how the functional brain network evolves during typical brain development. To address these questions I use advanced computational modelling, network and graph theoretical analyses on neuroimaging data, in collaboration with world-leading scientists – Professor Bruno Rossion (University of Louvain, Belgium), Dr. Arjan Hillebrand (VU University, the Netherlands), and Dr. Marta Garrido (the University of Queensland, Australia).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
