Research Scientist

Jiayu Chen, PhD

Dr. Chen’s research centers on imaging genetic analysis, aiming to characterize the genetic underpinnings of neurobiological traits that further relate to phenotypic manifestations of various mental disorders. Her research involves developing novel constrained multivariate multimodal approaches to mine high-dimensional complex data sets for better understanding of genetic effects on brain at network level. She is also interested in integrating different modalities of genetic (SNP, CNV, expression), epigenetic (methylation), neuroimaging (sMRI, fMRI, DTI) and behavioral data to construct a dimensional model that delineates the commonality and specificity among psychiatric disorders.
