In daily life, it seems spatial memory anchors us in space and episodic memory in time, but the hippocampus-dependent nature of these two suggests an interesting connection between them. I am currently interested in the neural mechanisms of human spatial navigation and the similarity underlying episodic and spatial memory, using a combination of behavioral tasks, virtual reality, and neuroimaging techniques.

I recently graduated from Renmin University of China with a BS in psychology, and a BS in economics (done in Peking University). In my free time, I love jogging, backpacking, and learning new languages!
