Changmin Yu


Changmin is a postdoctoral researcher in Computational and Biological Lab, funded by Wellcome Trust. He did his PhD in computational neuroscience and machine learning at UCL, under the supervision of Neil Burgess and Maneesh Sahani. During his PhD, Changmin worked on a variety of projects, including normative modelling of entorhinal grid cells under the context of planning and generalisation, unsupervised neural data analysis with structured deep generative models, and several projects in reinforcement learning. His current research focuses on normative modelling of hippocampal neurons with probabilistic inference under the spatial context, for explaining properties such as remapping, phase precession, and uncertainty representation.
