Growing up in Suzhou, a garden city with a splendid history in the east of China, I have always been interested in understanding how intelligence happens and how human brain works. During my undergraduate in Nanjing, I immersed myself in cognitive and developmental psychology and led a volunteer project for rural left-behind children, which influenced me to pursue another meaningful goal of improving the lives of underprivileged or left-behind children in rural areas by exerting my strengths in psychology and education. It was in my graduate period in the Chinese Academy of Sciences that I was exposed to Cognitive Neuroscience training. Captivated by the elegance of human brain, I firmly believe that it is my life career to be a neuroscientist. Thus, I decided to continue my journey with the passionate and outstanding scientists at Cambridge. During my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, I will further focus on the neural mechanism of cognitive control and the functional organization of human brain by using the combination of non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging in humans. I am profoundly honoured to be part of the Gates Cambridge community and I immensely look forward to working with others here to bettering the world.
