i am broadly interested in how the brain computes. i have enjoyed thinking questions like how the brain builds up 'good' models of the surrounding environment, and how to use such models to make 'good' decisions and guide behaviors. i am particularly interested in using general principles (such as efficient coding and bayesian computation) to understand cognitive functions, and how such principles are implemented in biological circuits. i am also thinking about how to use Bayesian decision theory to provide a unifying framework in understanding depression and anxiety, as well as other related psychopathelogical desease.
