Hualou Liang, PhD is a Professor at Drexel University, School of Biomedical Engineering. Dr Liang received the PhD degree in physics from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China. He studied signal processing at Dalian University of Technology, Dalian, China. Dr Liang has been a postdoctoral researcher at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, Max-Planck-Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Germany, and the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences, Florida Atlantic University, USA.

His research focuses on Neuroengineering, Neuroinfomatics, Functional Brain Imaging, Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience, and Biomedical Signal Processing. His lab explores neural mechanisms of visual perception during various cognitive tasks using computational approaches. His recent work deals with (1) development of software package ( for analyzing brain circuits, (2) neuronal oscillations and attentional control, (3) development of advanced signal processing methods for the analysis of nonstationary, multivariate neurobiological data (spikes, field potentials, EEG/MEG, fMRI etc), and (4) algorithm development for brain-computer interface or brain-machine Interface.
