I worked in the area of connectionist modelling for my Ph.D. at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. I then turned into brain imaging with an ultimate goal to study how the brain works to support cognition and behaviour. This has led to my post-doctoral training at Northwestern University. Currently my research focuses on studying, using techniques from brain imaging and artificial language learning paradigms, how speech processing is supported by a network of brain areas.
