About Me


Hi, I am a PhD student in the Language Processing Lab at the Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Prior to joining the lab, I worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I have a Master’s degree in Psychology at Renmin University of China, and a B.A. in translation and interpreting at Beijing International Studies University.

I’m interested in how the human brain represents and processes language and speakers. I’m currently working on projects related to the speaker effects in speech comprehension, and in word form learning. Recently, I started to look at to what extent large language models represent and process language in a way similar to human brains. In most of my work, I use electrophysiological methods such as EEG, but I’m also interested in neuroimaging methods such as fMRI.
