Prof. Gong was born and raised in the People’s Republic of China. In 1966, Mao Zedong (1893 – 1976), the founding father of the People’s Republic of China, began what is known as the Cultural Revolution (1966-76). Prof. Gong will share how the Cultural Revolution had a direct impact on his training and education. Prof. Gong will then proceed to discuss how his career has led him to his work in the field of automatic control and his current research interest in how the human mind works.
