Neuroscience Researchers in Singapore
"I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Computational Brain Imaging Group (PI: Thomas Yeo) at National University of Singapore. My research focuses on developing machine learning algorithms to study individual differences in brain organization from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and exploring their relationship with human behaviors.

I completed my PhD at National University of Singapore (supervisor: Thomas Yeo). My PhD research focused on estimating individual-specific network-level and areal-level parcellation. Similar to connectivity strength, my thesis work demonstrated that individual-specific network or parcel topography might also serve as a fingerprint of human behavior.

I was trained as an Engineer. Before my PhD, I worked on Media Access Control (MAC) protocol in wireless networks and developed base station softwares for smart house in the Intelligent to Wireless Networking and Cooperative Control (PI: Xinping Guan & Cailian Chen) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University."

Resources: Recordings from Brain Connectivity Workshop 2021 are now available!

This year's Brain Connectivity Workshop was held in May and took on the theme of "What does the mind think of the brain?". Talks in the workshop focus on consciousness and cognition, looking at the tripartite relationship between anatomical connectivity, brain dynamics and cognitive function.
