Ph.D. / M.D. Students

Yao Feng Chong

I'm a neurologist at National University Hospital who subspecialises in behavioural neurology. I am interested in cognitive and theoretical neuroscience, and the application of models to explain cognitive deterioration in dementia.

In my free time, I read eclectically.

Zijiao Chen

I completed my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Sydney in 2020.

Currently, I am a PhD student at Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, under the supervision of Professor Helen Zhou. My research topic is Multimodal Neuroimaging in Neuropsychiatric Disorders. I am especially interested in combining knowledge in machine learning and neuroscience, and performing analysis on fMRI/EEG data.

In my spare time, I enjoy petting my cat, reading and traveling. I am especially an outdoor person. I love diving and hiking from time to time.

Thuan Tinh (Sophia) Nguyen

I graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Biological Sciences under the CN Yang Scholars' Programme in Nanyang Technological University in 2019.

I am interested in using multimodal neuroimaging to investigate the changes in structural and functional brain networks associated with neuropsychiatric disorders, in particular dementia.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading and solving puzzles.

Yilei Wu

I graduated with a Bachelor degree from University of California, Irvine in Computer Science in 2020 Winter.

I worked in the CPCC lab under the EECS Department for my undergraduate research project. Currently, I am a Phd Student under Dr Helen Zhou.

My research area is computational algorithms in Medical imaging. I am interested in combining Machine Learning knowledge with Neuroimaging.

I like reading books and exploring Eastern-Asian culture. I am also very interested in knowing space technology.

Susan Cheng

I graduated with a major in Physics and a minor in Neural Computation from Carnegie Mellon University in 2020. I then worked in Dr. Pulkit Grover's lab as an RA.

Currently, I am a PhD student with Dr. Helen Zhou. I am interested in computational/statistical approaches to studying structural and functional brain networks and how they may be altered in disease.

In my free time, I like to go exploring, play card/board/tabletop games, and watch TV.

Zijian Dong

I graduated with a B.Eng degree in Biomedical Engineering from Beihang University in 2020.

Currently, I am a ECE PhD student under Prof. Helen Zhou. I am interested in applying machine learning techniques to investigate the secrets of the human brain.

I enjoy petting my cat, traveling, biking and swimming.
