Scott Cheng-Hsin Yang

I am currently a post-doc with Dr. Patrick Shafto in the Math & Comp Sci Department at Rutgers University–Newark. Here I am exploring the strengths and weaknesses of active exploration and different pedagogical methods with computational models and psychophysical experiments.

Before this, I was a post-doc with Prof. Daniel Wolpert and Dr. Máté Lengyel in the CBL Lab at University of Cambridge. There I studied active sensing by tracking human eye movement and quantifying its sensing efficiency with Bayesian active learning.

Before that, I did my PhD with Prof. John Bechhoefer in the Physics Department at Simon Fraser University. There I modelled the DNA replication as a stochastic process and applied the theory to analyze several types of replication experiment.

Ph.D. in Physics, Simon Fraser University (2012)
B.Sc. in Physics, University of British Columbia (2006)
