Lawrence Hu

Jianqiao “Lawrence” Hu is a graduate student in the Neuroscience program. He is a second-year doctoral candidate and is co-advised by Dr. Bing Brunton and Dr. Edgar Walker. His research interest lies in understanding how animals use active sensing and memory for survival and applying those insights to developing bio-inspired artificial intelligence. Currently, Lawrence is building an agent-based behavioral model of plume tracking in flying insects using Reinforcement Learning. He is also a researcher for the Neural Evidence Aggregation Tool program with Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, developing machine learning models for clinical psychiatry. Before relocating to Seattle, Lawrence dedicated his efforts to improving the scalability of high-throughput sequencing analysis to develop HIV vaccines with the Fredrick W. Alt lab at Boston Children’s Hospital, after obtaining Bachelor degrees in Mathematics and Molecular Biology at Boston University.
