Hello, I’m Hui Xin

📚 I am a PhD candidate in Cognitive Science at UC San Diego.

🧠 My research combines computational techniques and domain knowledge in clinical neuroscience and psychology to understand factors that contribute to brain aging in psychiatric disorders.

💻 I have work experience in product management, UX research, and business development in health tech startups.

🙌 Outside of work, I enjoy learning about “ancestral movement” approaches to physical activity by practicing and learning contemporary dance and martial arts.

✨ There is a space between my first name.

Research Interests and Values

The following questions guide my research interests and values as I continue to grow as a researcher:

  • How can we leverage advances in computational power to improve assessment of mental illnesses and develop more personalized treatment plans?
  • How can we incentivize best practices for reproducibility and replicability (e.g., data sharing, detailed methods section, and publishing negative data)?
  • How can we as researchers actively contribute to addressing climate change while considering the interconnected nature of social and environmental justice (i.e., intersectionality)?
