黄述泓 (Shuhong Huang)
I work as an early-stage researcher at Technische Universität München (TUM), under the supervision of Dr. Portugues. As part of the ZENITH ETN, my research project investigates how the zebrafish selects a proper action when different behaviors can reach the same purpose. Our target is to build a computational model of the zebrafish brain to understand the mechanism of the behavioral coordination. Previously, I got my bachelor degree at Sun Yat-sen University with the academic background of computer science and mathematics. I focused on the graph/network model from both a machine learning perspective and a statistical physics perspective.
ZENITH ETN is an innovative and insightful training program which combines multiple subjects and focuses on frontier neuroscience problems. Within this training network, researchers can exchange and study ideas and technologies (knowledge of biology, tools from bioengineering, models from physics, algorithms from computer science, etc) without any hindrance. Zenith also enables researchers to bridge the gap between different scales on the neuronal network, from molecules to the whole brain. As a Zenith student, I appreciate the opportunity to do research with a group of excellent neuroscientists and fellows.
