I am a Ph.D. student. My major research area is the decision-making process, including psychology, neuroscience, and behavior science. I have done some experiments about exploring drivers' psychological and physiological signals changing when they are facing emergent situations, such as collision avoidance and fatigue car-following process. Through combining drivers' psychology, physiology, and behavior, I have found their sports' reaction-time and perception-reaction time. I also use computational neuroscience models (machine/deep learning models) to predict decision-making choices. I hope I can find some meaningful mechanisms in order to provide some guidance for the decision-making process.
