I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Houston (UH). At UH, I was a member of the computational medicine lab and performed my research in the closed-loop brain states regulation area. I have training in control systems, signal processing, and biomedical applications. During my PhD, I analyzed physiological signals collected via wearable devices to infer internal brain states and designed control algorithms to close the loop. I also designed and performed multiple closed-loop human-subject experiments. In these novel experiments, we investigated how the safe actuation (e.g., drinking coffee and listening to music) would regulate internal brain states.
At Wang lab, I am enhancing my understanding of neurodegenerative brain disorders and applying my background knowledge in control systems to improve current adaptive deep brain stimulation (aDBS) practices. I investigate the effects of different stimulation parameters on brain responses and develop control systems for distributed aDBS applications. I am interested in knowing more about neuroscience, control systems, system identification, and their amazing interactions. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, spending time with folks, and traveling.
