Overview

Hello there! Here’s a sample of my past and current research work.
In brief, the variation on a theme here is story listening, neural activity and natural language processing models. Below, you can get an overview of my research, community-building, and writing projects.

Research

Contextual encoding model for human ECoG responses to a spoken narrative

2021-ongoing
abstract

  • aim: estimate neural markers of narrative context integration across the cortex
  • approach: building predictive models of ECoG responses based on contextualized and non-contextualized language representations scrambled at different linguistic scales

A review on the use of NLP techniques in neuroscience

2016-2017
paper

  • reviewed the basics of language models and vector-based semantics
  • synthesized the empirical findings in the then-emerging field of computational cognitive neuroscience of language
  • offered a balanced assesment of the state of the field
