Jing's research work focuses on the cognitive and neural mechanisms of social communication. She received her Master degree at Beijing Normal University in 2013, where she mainly studied the unique neural underpinnings of face-to-face verbal communication using fNIRS-based hyperscanning. During her Ph.D. studies at Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences and Humboldt-Universitšt zu Berlin in Germany from 2013 to 2017,she combined various techniques such as fMRI, MEG and eye tracking to study neural mechanisms of one important component in social interaction: eye contact.She joined the Etkin Lab in 2017 and has specifically focused on the causal neural circuitry of emotion processing in social context using TMS-fMRI.
