Welcome to my home page. I am a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision
Dr. Alan C. Evans at
the McConnell Brain
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
Jiang. My present work has focused on the characterization of normal
anatomical networks in the human brain using morphological data from
structural MRI in vivo.
My research interests include cortical thickness analysis, brain
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).
