During my PhD at Prof. Maria Chait’s lab at University College London, I used eye-tracking and EEG to investigate human hearing and attention. Before that, I did BSc Neuroscience and MSc Computer Science, all at UCL.
As a contributor to Pavlovia and PsychoJS, I am also very experienced with running (especially auditory) experiments online (even before the pandemic).
In general, I am interested how the human brain constructs a model of the environment to effectively adapt in an ever-changing world and evaluate how much effort to exert.
In my spare time, I am a popular science writer. Here is my blog and my neuroscience podcast channel. So far, I have published one popular neuroscience book in Chinese and three e-books, two new books will be released in Feb 2022.
