Dr. Zhang received her Ph.D. degree in 2019 in Biomedical Engineering from Tsinghua University School of Medicine. She was a Visiting Student Researcher in the Radiology Department at Stanford in 2017-2018. Her dissertation research focused on identifying neuroimaging markers for depression vulnerability through fMRI and simultaneous fPET-fMRI.
Dr. Zhang was interested in methods development for dynamic fMRI and fPET analysis, especially in characterizing brain dynamics through resting-state fMRI in psychiatric diseases (depression and anxiety).
Dr. Zhang joined PanLab in 2020 on two projects: 1) examining human structural and functional changes relevant to drug abuse on the brain’s risk and reward circuits; 2) engaging self-regulation targets to understand the mechanisms of behavior change and improve mood and weight outcomes (ENGAGE).
