Seoyoung is a doctoral student in the Integrative Neuroscience program working with Professor Akram Bakkour. She received her B.A. in Psychology from New York University Abu Dhabi and her M.A. in Cognitive Science from the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences at the University of Trento, Italy.
Seoyoung is interested in understanding the neural mechanisms underlying the interaction between memory and decision-making. She hopes to use brain imaging and computational modelling to investigate what types of information are being sampled from our past experiences when we make decisions and how this process is represented in the brain.
