I received my BSc in electrical and computer engineering at Hanyang University (Seoul, South Korea).  In my senior year, I was fascinated by how neurobiological system can be modelled and interpreted mathematically, so I decided to study the brain.  Then I completed graduate training in cognitive neuroscience at McGill University (Montreal) under Dr. Antonio Strafella and Dr. Alain Ptito. After earning my PhD, I continued my training as a post-doctoral fellow in functional brain imaging at the University of Toronto, once again under Dr. Strafella.  Then, I moved to New York to join in Dr. David Eidelberg’s group (Feinstein Institute for Medical Research) and trained in multivariate brain imaging analysis.  In 2014, I got appointed to an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba and I am currently investigating brain imaging-based biomarker and therapeutic brain stimulation.
