Research Interests: 

Ding is a 5th year PhD student in Psychology and works in the Psychophysiology Laboratory under Dr. John J.B. Allen's supervision. Currently, his main research interest is to investigate what happens in the brain when people are at rest, i.e. how different brain regions causally influence each other and its implication for various forms of psychopathology. He also considers himself a Bayesian and believes that Bayesian inference provides a principled way to understand the human brain and how they interact with the environment that they find themselves in.
