Brief History

I received my BSc from Civil Aviation University of China in 2002, and Ph.D. from Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2007. Since June 2007, I has worked in National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition as an assistant professor , associate professor and professor. My research interests mainly focus on imaging genomics, systems biology, brain networks and their applications in brain diseases.
