Research Area: Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience
I am currently most interested in modeling perceptual expertise.
I am a Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience PhD. student at Vanderbilt University. I joined Prof. Thomas Palmeri's research team in 2012. Before I came to Vanderbilt, I stayed in Prof. Fang Fang's lab as a research assistant for two years at Peking University in China.
