The big questions
The general landscape of my research interests is the application of technologies in health/medical area.
In particular, for health/medicine, I am interested in neuro/brain related topics. For technology field, I am interested in Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and Human-Computer Interaction.
These areas actually have something in common: they touch certain profound topics, such as:
- how the brain works (Neurology, Neuroscience, AI)
- how we sense this world (VR, AI)
- how interactions shape or fake our conception (HCI, VR, neuroscience)
Random thoughts on making decisions
So far I haven’t come up with a specific research topic yet. I wish I could find my “Research Mr. Right” earlier so that I can speed up the PhD journey. The funny thing about choice is that once a decision is made, all other possibilities suddenly disappear. It’s like Schrödinger’s cat: before making a decision, all possible worlds happily coexist. I think that’s probably why I procrastinate for years. Another reason is that I’m satisfied with superficial knowledge, but would rather not dive into a specific area to taste the bitter beneath the sweet. Fortunately, my PhD journey encourages me to take such endeavor, and I look forward to seeing myself become an expert in some certain areas in medical related technologies.
