Jihyun is a research technician in the Rutledge Lab directed by Dr. Robb Rutledge at Yale University. In August 2021, she received a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Computational Clinical Science Lab directed by Dr. Woo-Young Ahn. After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with the Bachelor’s degree in Accounting (Honors in Management), she started to wonder the essence of mental health, human decision-making processes and emotions.
Jihyun is particularly interested in 1) understanding the latent decision-making processes of depression and anxiety using computational modeling, 2) developing individualized intervention plans to prevent suicidal attempts, and 3) delving into the complex relationship between emotions and decision-making. She has been mainly utilizing
neuroimaging (e.g., fMRI, fNIRS),
computational modeling and
natural language processing.
She pursues to be a PhD student in Clinical Psychology at an university based in the United States.
Outside the lab, she is a rock climber, pianist, and (occasionally) k-pop dancer 💃😄
