I double majored in biology with neuroscience emphasis and psychology at the University of Oregon (Class 2014). I’ve got interested in how people interact in society and what brings individuals make differences in the way they make decisions in social relationships. Having impairments in cognitive functions and brain, which are risk factors for mental illnesses, might lead social maladjustment and make the vulnerable individuals have difficulties in normal interactions with others in society. I believe understanding risks for psychosis, especially schizophrenia, and cognitive impairments (e.g., difficulty in self-control) in Obsessive-Compulsive disorder would be helpful for clinical applications and let us know how to support individuals vulnerable to social dysfunctions like difficulties to have good relationships with others. With the interest, I started a graduate training program in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences (BCS) at Seoul National University and currently involved in Clinical Cognitive Neuroscience Center (CCNC).

Research interest:

• Topics: Cognitive neuroscience and risk-prediction in mental disorders; Social cognition and functioning; Decision-making and self-control (OFC)
• Methods: Neuroimaging; Brain connectivities and networks; Multi-atlas segmentation
