Position Title
Project Scientist


Xiaonan is interested in understanding how memory retrieval and post-retrieval spontaneous brain activity can modify memory representation and affect long-term retention. In addition, Xiaonan is also interested in applying laboratory paradigms to the real world and examining how retrieval of events in real-life contexts can change representation of continuous memory traces.   

Xiaonan received his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon in 2015 where he studied neural and cognitive mechanisms underlying memory formation and retrieval. Outside of the lab, Xiaonan likes running and cooking.
