Welcome to my home page. I am a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Dr. Alan C. Evans at the McConnell Brain Imaging Center of Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University. I received my Ph.D. degree in July, 2005 from the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences at Beijing, where I studied the methods and clinical applications of resting-state functional MRI at the laboratory of Dr. Tianzi Jiang. My present work has focused on the characterization of normal and disease-specific anatomical networks in the human brain using morphological data from structural MRI in vivo.

My research interests include cortical thickness analysis, brain anatomical/functional network analysis, resting-state functional MRI and their applications in normal aging and brain disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.

Since 2008, I have moved to the State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning, Beijing Normal University, China, as a faculty member (Principle Investigator).
