My Experience in Cognitive Science

I was introduced to Cognitive Science through a course in Cornell Summer Session.

It is an introductory course (COGST 1101). For me it helped development basic understanding of the relatively new field of study. It might be an excellent course for you if you find interests in this inter-disciplinary subject.

“Surveys the study of how the mind/brain works. Examines how intelligent information processing can arise from biological and artificial systems. Draws primarily from five disciplines that make major contributions to cognitive science: philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, and computer science. The first part of the course introduces the roles played by these disciplines in cognitive science. The second part focuses on how each of these disciplines contributes to the study of five topics in cognitive science: language, vision, learning and memory, action, and artificial intelligence.”

I am pursuing Cognitive Science (B.A.) under Dornsife College of Art & Science and Computer Science (B.S.) under Viterbi School of Engineering at University of Southern California since Fall 2019.

In summer 2020, I had a chance to work with Prof. Chengjun Wang at Nanjing University last summer on analysis on fake news propagation on Twitter with natural language processing models.

I am also an incoming research assistant at the Social Affective Neuroscience of Decisions lab @USC with Prof. Stephen Read applying neural network models on social psychology issues.

Here are some courses I am taking/have taken:

Philosophy: The Meaning of Life;

Psychology: The Origin of Minds; Cognitive Process;
