I received my Ph.D in psychology at Peking University in 2012, specializing in cognitive neuroscience. Invited by Prof. Hiromu Sakai, I started my post-doc research in Hiroshima University, Japan, after my graduation from PKU, and moved on to Waseda University two years later. Since February, 2017, I have become a member of Phonetics Lab at Linguistics Institute, CASS.
I aim to answer a broad question regarding how humans process language from a cognitive-neural perspective. Specifically, my research interests in the mechanism underlying the processing of prosodic features and prosodic structures lead me to the explorations of linguistic phenomena in Chinese such as the rhythmic pattern, prosodic boundaries, neutral tones, etc. Besides, my attention is also paid to reasoning (particularly in language), concerning how causality knowledge is represented and utilized. I am collaborating with several research units in other countries.
