    Dr. You is a biomedical engineer with postdoctoral training in brain imaging methods in the cognitive neurosciences.  Her doctoral research focused on analysis of fMRI activation patterns in language neural network reorganization in pediatric epilepsy, using data-driven methods. Her research interest recently has focused on development and application of functional connectivity methods for examination of functional networks in the resting-state and task-evoked paradigms in pediatric populations with developmental disorders such as Autism, ADHD, and Epilepsy. She was hired as a computational neuroscientist at Children's National Medical Center (CNMC) under the IDDRC neuroimaging core where she bring computational expertise to support imaging research initiatives and projects that include behavioral data analysis to neuroimaging data analysis. Dr. You has been centrally involved in several projects using advanced/novel data driven methods and interdisciplinary methods, such as graph theory in pediatric populations including Epilepsy, ASD, Obesity, and spanning CNMC, NIH, and Georgetown University.
