Tian Lan is a biomedical engineer with the Brain Institute. He holds an M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from UC Irvine and a B.E. in Biomedical Engineering from Tianjin Medical University.
Tian is keen on applying techniques like electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), biophysics, eye-tracking, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and robotics in various environments to assess human brain activities and physiological changes, in particular, the underlying mechanisms of consciousness in decision making and voluntary actions. Also, he is interested in applying machine learning techniques in the real-time processing of human neural time series data.
His rounded experience in engineering, electronics, physiology, psychology, and cognitive sciences enables him to manage the equipment/device in the lab well and help with the smooth operation of the institute.
He's also a road trip enthusiast, sports lover and a foodie.
