Short bio:

I completed my double degree at Master of Science in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging with Christopher Bailey from Aarhus University and Master of Natural Science with Rong Xue and Zuxiang Liu from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2017. During my master, I used the Support Vector Regression (SVR) and Gradient Boosting Decision Tree (GBDT) to construct the tail dynamics of free swimming larval zebrafish and compared the behavioral difference of the larva with laser lesion on two different brain regions. I obtained my Bachelor with Enmin Zhou from University of Northwest A&F in 2014.

Now, my Ph.D. project explores the subcortical role in auditory and visual attention at 7T fMRI, under the supervision of Peter De Weerd, Mark J. Roberts and Federico De Martino.
