I hope to develop translational tools that can provide accurate and personalized diagnosis and treatment optimization for mental disorders. This can be achieved by identifying objective biomarkers associated with mental disorders and their treatment outcomes through multimodal data including brain imaging, genetic, biological, behavioral, cognitive and clinical measurements, and by applying advanced machine learning and statistical algorithms to these data.
Our brain is a very plastic organ that changes over the lifespan. It is necessary to consider the brain development and aging and associated cognitive change, when we investigate brain disorders. I am interested in lifespan structural and functional changes of the brain, developing personalized tools of brain development and aging, and applying these tools to the brain with mental disorders.
