Biography

I am a PhD student in the Cognitive Neuroscience Division, working under the supervision of Dr. Florin Dolcos at the Social, Cognitive, Personality, and Emotional (SCoPE) Neuroscience Lab. I received a BA in Psychology and a BS in Systems Biology in 2015, and an MA in Psychology from Yonsei University in South Korea in 2017.

Research Interests

 

  • Emotion-cognition interactions
  • Emotion regulation
  • Episodic memory
  • Mindfulness
  • Psychopathology
  • Functional network interactions in the brain

 

Research Description

My main research interests lie in the area of affective and cognitive neuroscience, with an emphasis on the neural correlates of emotion-cognition interactions. In particular, my graduate work involves examination of the role of individual differences in influencing the impact of emotion on various cognitive processes (social cognition, emotion regulation, and episodic memory). Methodologically, I employ a range of techniques that assess different aspects of nervous system activity (e.g., structural MRI, functional MRI, EEG/ERPs, skin conductance, eye tracking) in conjunction with behavioral and neuropsychological assessment tools.
