Hung-Tu Chen

Ph.D. Candidate, Dartmouth College

Hung-Tu Chen is a Ph.D. student in Neuroscience at Dartmouth working with Matthijs van der Meer. Previously, they worked with Jeffery Erlich at NYU Shanghai and studied the neural mechanism of planning and adaptive behaviors. Their current research interest lies in understanding how the brain, particularly the hippocampus, encodes a shared representation across different experiences. Hung-Tu is also interested in the role of hippocampal replay in shaping this representation, particularly through an offline interference-preventing consolidation and a fictive learning process.

Working with Alex Williams at Flatiron institute, Hung-Tu will use machine learning and statistical methods to understand the mathematical properties of this shared representation and inform what is still unknown about the brain.
