Hi, I'm Ching!

I am a PhD candidate at Columbia University’s neuroscience program, co-advised by Larry Abbott and Dmitriy Aronov. I work in the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience.

I am broadly interested in connecting how AI models and biological circuits support learning and memory.

In the Abbott and Aronov labs, I work on mechanistic models of memory formation and retrieval, taking inspiration from advances in machine learning.

I previously did my undergrad at UC Berkeley, where I studied computer science and molecular & cell biology. There, I worked in the lab of Jose Carmena in understanding how neural circuits drive neuroprosthetic learning.
