Taige is currently an undergraduate student at the University of California, San Diego, pursuing the double major in Physics and Mathematics. He started his undergraduate program in 2016 after graduating from No.2 High School of East China Normal University, Shanghai, China. He was awarded the First Award of Patent and Trademark Office Society in 66th Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in 2015. In the summer of 2015, he volunteered on the “BioInspired Stretchable Absolute Pressure Sensor Network” in Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials, Stanford University. In the fall of 2016, he joined the UCSD cosmology research group. He assisted Martin Navaroli in building the POLCAL, a rotating polarized source to calibrate the telescope POLARBEAR-1. In the spring of 2017, Taige shifted his interest to neurophysics and joined David Kleinfeld Laboratory at UC San Diego. He is visiting California Institute of Technology as a SURF student in the Mixed-mode Integrated Circuits and Systems Lab this summer, analyzing the correlation between local field potentials in specific brain regions and symptoms like tremor for the Parkinson�s Disease patients. This study can help to design adaptive deep brain stimulation devices and further understand the mechanism of Parkinson�s Disease.
