LIU Quanying
Assistant Professor

Dr. Quanying Liu, joined Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) in September 2019, as an Assistant Professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Doctoral Supervisor, PI of Neural Computing and Control Laboratory (NCC lab). Before joining SUSTech, Quanying obtained her PhD degree from ETH Zurich and received postdoctoral training at Caltech. 

Quanying's research focuses on interactions among neuroscience, machine learning and control theory, including multi-modal neural signal processing (EEG, sEEG, fMRI, DTI), AI for neuroscience (explainable AI to interpret the structure and function of the brain), optimization for neuromodulation (tES, TMS, electrical stimulation). 

Dr. Quanying Liu has published over 60 research articles in top journals/conferences such as The Innovation, PNAS, Neuroimage, Neural Networks, Neurocomputing, HBM, JNE, IJNS, JBHI. Her work has been cited more than 1800 times, with an H factor of 22. She is the associate editor of IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine (JTEHM).

For anyone who is interested in joining NCC lab, please feel free to email me.
