Research Interests

Statistical physics of disordered systems; probabilistic inference of graphical models;
theoretical and computational models of neural networks.

I am now at Sun Yat-sen University to start a research group at the interplay between physics, brain science and machine learning. Welcome to contact me if you want to visit us, or join as a master student or research fellow.
