Lecturer Profiles

Zhaoping LI

Professor of computational neuroscience in University College London, visiting professor of State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning, in Beijing Normal University

Zhaoping Li obtained her B.S. in Physics in 1984 from Fudan University, Shanghai, and Ph.D. in Physics in 1989 from California Institute of Technology. She was a postdoctoral researcher in Fermi National Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois USA, Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton New Jersey, USA, and Rockefeller University in New York USA. She has been a faculty member in Computer Science in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. In 1998, Zhaoping Li helped to found the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit in University College London. Currently, she is a Professor of computational neuroscience in the Department of Computer Science in University College London. Her research experience throughout the years ranges from areas in high energy physics to neurophysiology and marine biology, with most experience in understanding the brain functions in vision, olfaction, and in nonlinear neural dynamics. In late 90s and early 2000s, she proposed a theory (which is being extensively tested) that the primary visual cortex in the primate brain creates a saliency map to automatically attract visual attention to salient visual locations. She is the author of Understanding Vision: theory, models, and data , Oxford University Press, 2014.  

Qi Ouyang

Professor of Peking University

Qi Ouyang, Professor of Peking University, member of Chinese Academic Science. Associate director of the School of Physics, Peking University, associate director of the Center for Quantitative Biology, Peking University. Ph.D. at the University of Bordeaux I, France. 1989-1998, post-doc at University of Texas at Austin, research scientist the Institute of Nonlinear Dynamics in Nice, France and at the NEC Research Institute in Princeton, US, respectively. 1989, Professor at Peking University. The main areas of research interesting include nonlinear dynamics, systems biology, synthetic biology and cryo-EM structure biology. 

Fang Fang

Dean of School of Psychological and Cognitive Sciences

Dr. Fang Fang is Chang Jiang Professor of Psychology, dean of the School of Psychological and Cognitive Sciences, director of Beijing Key Laboratory of Behavior and Mental Health, and executive associate director of the IDG/McGovern Institute for Brain Research at Peking University. He obtained a Ph.D. in Cognitive and Biological Psychology at the University of Minnesota in 2006, and was a Postdoctoral Research Associate between 2006 and 2007. His research seeks to understand the neural mechanisms of visual and cognitive processes by combining neuroimaging, psychophysical and computational techniques. He currently serves on the editorial board for Current Biology, Experimental Brain Research, Frontiers in Perception Science and Science China: Life Sciences.
