My name is Xin Di (邸新 in Chinese). I studied electronic and information engineering in college, and started to do research in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience in Department of Psychology, Sun Yat-Sen University, China. After got my PhD, I did postdoc research in Radiology Department, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. I am now a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology. For more information, please see my CV
