Hi. I'm Jo and I research brain networks.

I am a member of the BNBL run by prof. Rick Betzel at Indiana University - Bloomington. Presently, I am working on idiosyncratic features of the human brain network and network modularity in varying fMRI datasets and neuropsychological conditions. I am also interested in the brain's developing network architecture and applying network science approaches to understanding the human brain.

Academic background
I finished my B.Sc. in Biology and B.Eng in Biotechnology at Sogang University (Magna cum Laude). Led by my interest in the brain and behavior, I flew to London to study neuroscience with prof. Marco Catani at King's College London (Meritus). My master's thesis was on the structural connectivity of the visual occipital fasciculus and it's potential influence in human language abilities. I am now based at Indiana University - Bloomington (FA2019 - present) in the Psychological and Brain Sciences Department with my research focus on computational and cognitive neuroscience.

Facts about me?
(a) I enjoy cooking and traveling
(b) My handsome cat - Hoochu - was adopted from an animal shelter
(c) I used to play competitive badminton (and I still enjoy playing)
(d) Favorite genre of movies: horror (i.e. Dark Water) and drama (i.e. Old Boy, Oasis)
(e) Favorite genre of games: zombie fps (RE series, Dying Light), indie (Crypt of the Necrodancer)
