Fengtong Du is a graduate student in the Janelia Joint Graduate Program with Johns Hopkins. During her undergraduate studies, her primary focus was on developing computer vision models. She later became captivated by the brain's remarkable capacity to tackle visual problems and chose to dive into the complexities of the brain. She is interested in understanding the visual population coding in mice, as well as the neural mechanisms that shape their internal representation of the world.

In her current work, she utilizes large-scale calcium imaging and computational modeling to gain insight into the neural representation of visual textures in mice and how it supports the downstream decoding of texture identity. Additionally, she is also exploring the field of unsupervised learning and multisensory integration in mice, studying how the neural representation of the mice develops and adapts as they experience their surroundings in a virtual reality environment.
