My research interests are focused on computational methods for R-fMRI, the electrophysiological significance of R-fMRI measures and developing a mechanistic understanding of ongoing low frequency fluctuations. Dedicated to the field of R-fMRI, I have published 30 peer-reviewed journal articles, achieving an h-index of 21. I have created R-fMRI data processing software, including DPARSF and DPABI. I also initiated the R-fMRI Network ( for connecting researchers and sharing resources.
