Fang Jiang

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington in Seattle.


Research Interests

I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas, under the supervision of Dr. Alice O'Toole. My research interests focus on understanding the nature of the neural mechanisms underlying high-level cognitive functions, face recognition in particular, using multidisciplinary methods.
