Joint WRF Graduate Student
Data Management, Neuroscience
Nancy (Xin Ru) Wang is a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science and Engineering program advised by Rajesh Rao in Computer Science and Bingni Brunton in Biology. She is also a member of GridLab under Jeff Ojemann from Neurosurgery and GRAIL (Graphics and AI) under Ali Farhadi from Computer Science.
Wang’s interests lie in using unsupervised methods for data-intensive discovery in the field of neural decoding. Her project automates the decoding of electrophysiological signals using multiple modalities, such as video and audio, with methods from Computer Vision and Speech Processing.
Wang came to the University of Washington from Vancouver, Canada, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Honors Computer Science from the University of British Columbia. She is a joint Washington Research Innovation graduate fellow in Neuroengineering and Data Science.
