I am a Ph.D. student in the Neuroscience of Reinforcement Learning and Decision-Making Lab (NRD Lab), directed by Dr. Robert Wilson. Beyond my research, I like playing video games, basketball and guitars.

Research Interests: 

  • Utilizing cutting-edge AI techniques like LLM (Large Language Model) to probe human thoughts during learning and decision-making process. 
  • Computational mechanisms of how humans adaptively learn and decide.
