I'm interested in how individuals acquire knowledge from daily experience and dynamic environments. Motivated to further understand the neural/biological, cognitive, and computational mechanisms of such a learning process, I focus on memory and sleep in my current work. But I am also open to other related topics, such as decision-making, statistical learning, and causal reasoning, and happy to look at the development and mental health aspects in my future research.

My research interests primarily revolve around human episodic memory. I specialize in EEG and signal processing. I am particularly intrigued by the impact of various approaches on memory and the corresponding underlying mechanisms. These approaches encompass cognitive strategies, sleep, tACS, rhythmic auditory stimuli, physical environment, and more. I find them captivating and believe they complement one another.
