Shaomin is a visiting scholar at the Brown Institute for Brain Science. He is a lecturer from Qiushi Academy for Advanced Studies (QAAs) in Zhejiang University, China. He joined the BrainGate research team in 2011, where he is analyzing the single unit activities and local field potentials from clinical research sessions.
Shaomin received his B.S. and Ph.D in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University in 2002 and 2007. As a Ph.D student in the lab of Prof. Xiaoxiang Zheng, his research focused on methods for evaluating the effects of Chinese traditional medicine and physical therapy on post-stroke rehabilitation. During his postdoc, he worked on improving decoding performance by combining LFP and spike signals and an adaptive GRNN (general recurrent neural network) model. He also took part in setting up the first NHP brain-machine interface Lab in China.
