She received a Master’s degree in Psychology from SNU in August 2021 and a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Washington University in St. Louis with Honors in Management (May 2018). She is broadly interested in understanding neural mechanisms underlying psychiatric disorders and building affordable biomarkers.

Balancing between quantitative and qualitative approaches, she hopes to become a scientist and clinician who promotes more individual-focused research and treatment.
