National Taiwan University, having previously worked as a
postdoctoral researcher in the Center of Neural Science at New York
University from 2006 to 2011.
One of his research projects, “The Spatiotemporal Receptive
Fields of Single Neurons in Different Layers of Macaque Primary
Visual Cortex” was awarded the Patterson Trust Postdoctoral
Fellowship (2007-2009). His research focuses on understanding the
neural basis of visual perception and decision making, which is
essential for the studies of neural coding and brain functions.
