Multiscale modelling and inference in visual photo transduction

SPEAKER Zhuoyi Song (Postdoc researcher,University of Sheffield,UK)

Dr. Zhuoyi Song is currently a research fellow of computational neuroscience at the University of Sheffield (UoS), UK. Her current work focuses on developing multi-scale modeling and inference framework for understanding signal transduction mechanisms in sensory receptor neurons. She received combined training in both Engineering and Biomedical Science disciplines. She obtained both of her undergraduate and master degree in Electrical Engineering and Control Theory. She then got a Ph.D. in the interdisciplinary area of computational neuroscience at UoS in 2011. She continued her postdoctoral training in Prof. Mikko Juusola’s lab, biomedical Science department, UoS. In 2013, she received a prestigious 2020 Science research fellowship in UCL, London in computational life science. This research has been published in Current Biology (IF>10), Journal of Neuroscience (IF>7), etc. She has given many talks at University of Oxford, UCL, etc. She has also received many international awards (>20) for training, including travel grants, paper prizes and research internships.
