Ph.D. Student in Psychology, admitted Autumn 2018
BioJinxiao is a graduate student in the Psychology Department. His research interest generally lies in how the "emotion system" and the "cognition system" interplay with each other. Specifically, he is interested in how cognitive control can modulate emotion processes as well as how emotion can affect cognitive processes. He is also interested in how the emotion-cognition interaction relates to psychological health. He uses neuroimaging, physiological, eye-tracking, and behavioral methods to investigate these research questions. In his recent work, he studies how sleep influences emotion regulation and other emotional processes. He is a big fan of interdisciplinary research (psychological, biochemical, and computational) and open science practice.
