Yuanyuan Gao completed her PhD at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her PhD thesis researched the effects of neuromodulation on human motor learning using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). She finished her first postdoctoral training term in Dr. David Boas' lab in Boston University on advanced fNIRS data analysis. She is now a postdoctoral fellow working at Stanford University for her second term of postdoctoral training on the clinical applications of fNIRS. Her research interests are fNIRS, its multimodels with fMRI, EEG, eye-tracker, physiology measurements, neuromodulation and machine learning models, and its applications in clinical research.
