About Me

Me

Xufeng Duan

I am a PhD candidate in the language processing lab, Linguistic department, Chinese University of Hong Kong (top 50 university in QS ranking). I am looking for a postdoc position in 2024.

My research foucus on large language model(LLM) and orthographic processing in Chinese handwriting. I used behavior/EEG/fMRI evidence and computational method to study the mechanism of language system. I was also trained and licensed to use TMS for research in Hong Kong and had an intern as language therapist/researcher for aphasia in the Third Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University.
