Sean is a Ph.D. student in the Psychology Department working with Professor Joseph Austerweil and Professor Edward Hubbard. He currently investigates children’s math cognition development via computational modeling with fMRI data. He also investigates the “number sense” in artificial neural networks and compare it to human’s math cognition. In addition, with the collaboration with Professor Jerry Zhu, he also works on modeling teacher-student interactions and optimizing teaching with Markov decision process framework. He received his BS in psychology and neuroscience from National Taiwan University.
