Xuan joined the lab in October 2017 to read for a DPhil looking at neuromorphic computing with photonics and phase change materials. Phase change materials are promising candidate to mimic neurons and synapses of human beings. With these components, it is possible to mimic biological activities in human brains, such as memory and computing, The performance of data computing and memory then could be improved in a large scale compared with current computer architecture. She finished her final year project in Nanyang Technological University as an exchange student (01/2016-07/2016). In her spare time, She loves running, traveling and explore any different things in life.
