Si Jia Li
Si Jia Li is a graduate student at the department of Bioengineering, advised by Prof. Amy Orsborn. Prior to UW, he received his Bachelor of Applied Science in Bioengineering from the University of Toronto and his master’s degree in computer science from Queen’s University (Canada). His master’s research was on ultrasound detection of prostate cancer. For his PhD studies, his research interests are neuroengineering, brain computer interfaces (BCI), and learning. Specifically, he is analyzing brain recordings using machine learning, dimensionality, and connectivity methods. Modelling and understanding these recordings could shed light on motor learning mechanisms in the brain. His work could also potentially help develop BCI with better performance and bridge the gap between experiments and computational neuroscience theories.
