His long term goal is to understand how intelligent information is processed in the brain and develop new type (brain-like) computational models and algorithms for visual and auditory information processing.
Currently, his research interests cover brain-like computing model and its computing mechanism, visual information representation and global feature analysis, brain signal processing and brain-computer interface, perception and cognition computing model, statistical learning and inference. He has published more than 200 papers in international journals and conferences.
He serves as the associate editor of “International Journal of Computational Intelligence and Neuroscience”, the director of the committee of Biocybernetics and Biomedical engineering, Chinese Automation Association; member of Chinese Neural Network Society, member of neuroinformatics and neuroengineering committee, Chinese Neuroscience Association. He is also the reviewer of a number of international journals, such as IEEE Trans. Neural Networks，IEEE Trans. Signal Processing，IEEE Signal Processing Letters
