About Me

I received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, Anhui, China in 2001 and 2004. Under the guidance of Dr. Principe, I received the Ph.D. degree from University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA in 2008. I worked as a Fellow Intern in Siemens Corporation Research, Princeton, NJ, USA in 2007. In 2008, I joined the Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering as a Research Associate at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Kowloon, Hong Kong. In 2010, I joined the faculty of Qiushi Academy for Advanced Studies, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. I am currently an Associate Professor there.
 
My Research Interests

My research interests are in brain-machine interfaces, adaptive signal processing, computational neuroscience, neuromorphic engineering, machine learning and information theoretical learning.
