My name is Linxing (Preston) Jiang (姜麟星, jiāng línxīng). I’m a first-year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Washington. My advisor is Rajesh Rao. I received my BS and MS degree in computer science, both from the University of Washington. I’m from Harbin, China.

I’m interested in developing theories in neuroscience from the principles of Bayesian inference and generative models. Currently, I’m focusing on predictive coding theories to explain spatiotemporal feature learning of the visual cortex. My ultimate goal is to provide functional explanations for various brain functions such as perception, decision making, and memory through the lens of internal (generative) model building.

I’m a memebr of the Neural Systems Lab and Center for Neurotechnology at UW CSE. Please feel free to reach out if you are interested in joining the lab for research opportunities!


Feb 10, 2021 I will be presenting Dynamic Predictive Coding with Hypernetworks at Cosyne 2021! Come check out our poster at 2-067!
Apr 10, 2020 Starting Fall 2020, I will be joining UW CSE as a PhD student! Excited for what comes next!
