I joined the Kuperberg Lab in 2016. I received my PhD in 2011 from the Max Planck Institute of Psycholinguistics, with the supervision of Peter Hagoort and Marcel Bastiaansen. Afterwards, I worked in the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing as an assistant professor from 2011-2013 and then as an associate professor. In 2015, I conducted post-doctoral research with Peter Hagoort and Ole Jensen in the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at Radboud University in the Netherlands. My research interest concerns the neural mechanisms underlying prediction, attention and emotion during language comprehension. Specifically, I am interested in: (1) Different levels of prediction in sentence processing, (2) The interaction between attention and emotion during language comprehension and (3) the influence of linguistic and non-linguistic factors on language comprehension. In current work, I will use MEG and fMRI techniques to study the coordination of language network under the generative hierarchical probabilistic framework.
