Biography

I’m an assistant professor in the department of statistics at the  the National Cheng Kung University. My main research including the application of Bayesian approaches to the fMRI and DTI data. I was a postdoctoral associate at the Rochester Center for Brain Imaging (RCBI), University of Rochester, examining whether the altered activation of human brain underlies the impaired response inhibition and to investigate whether the frontostriatal connectivity is related to the same underlying dysfunction. My CV is here and my research interest is here.
