Philosophy Statement:

Broadly speaking, my research has focused on the effects of stress/trauma on emotional behavior, especially aggression, depression, bully, and the brain.  With various neurobiological techniques (e.g., magnetic resonance imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, cortisol assay), my current work has focused on three major themes.  First, my research team examines the impacts of childhood trauma and other stressors on emotional disturbance and emotional regulation via structural/functional brain alterations.  Second, we aim to elucidate the relationship between aggression and depression and explore why some depressive individuals (but not all people with depressive tendencies) exhibit aggression from neurobiological aspects.  Finally, we specifically study the neuroscience of bully and assess how bully perpetration and/or peer victimization may be associated with attentional control, emotional regulation, structural and functional brain changes, and cortisol reactivity.  For details about my research work, please visit here.
