CAO, Miao

Post-doc, School of Physics, Peking University

Dr. Miao Cao is currently a post-doctoral research fellow at School of Physics, Peking University. He completed his PhD in 2020 under Sir John Eccles Chair Prof. Mark Cook , Prof. Chris Plummer, Dr. Simon Vogrin and Dr. Andre Peterson at Department of Medicine, The University of Melbourne and Centre for Clinical Neurosciences, St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. He has primarily focused on electromagnetic source imaging of ictal and interictal activity and dynamical network models to better inform epilepsy surgery. His work extends the current invasive pre-surgical gold-standard to non-invasive objective characterisation for resective surgery. This work may offer broader applications to other neurological disorders that require high temporo-spatial resolutions to investigate fast neural dynamics.
