Research Interests

Dr. Zhou’s research interest is dynamical processes on complex systems. His current emphasis is on analysis and modeling connectivity and activity in neural systems in collaboration with experimental neuroscientists, using the approaches of oscillatory dynamics networks and covering broad scales from network of excitatory-inhibitory neurons to interacting functional brain regions and functional EEG and cognitive variability and disorders. He has strong interest in brain-inspired artificial intelligence based on complex neural dynamics.
