HILARY NGAI

PhD Student

I am a third-year PhD student at the PANDM Lab. I grew up in Hong Kong and obtained my Bachelor of Science (BS) in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior with a minor in English Literature in the University of California, Davis. My research interest include decision-making, neural mechanisms of affective experiences and related issues in internalising disorders. My passions include working out, coffee and teaching!

RAMESH KARNANI

PhD Student

After earning a MSocSc (Psychology) at HKU in 2020, I joined Dr. Frances Jin’s PANDM Lab and am now a second-year PhD student pursuing an interdisciplinary study of psychopathology and decision neuroscience.
My prior background includes a BSc in Mechanical Engineering, an MBA and over 30 years of experience in senior management positions in the manufacturing industry in Hong Kong.
Using novel behavioral paradigms, I hope to combine theory with computational modeling and neuroimaging technologies to improve our understanding of the psychological and neural mechanisms of human behaviour. I have broad interests and enjoy reading, sports and good conversation.

FRIEDERIKE ELISABETH HEDLEY

MPhil Student

I am an MPhil student in Cognitive Psychology & Neuroscience. Before joining PANDM Lab, I earned a BSc in Psychology and Psychotherapy. The human brain and the complexities of emotion fascinate me. I am curious about emotion-related perceptual decision-making and how this is modulated by psychopathology. 
Growing up in the marshlands of Northern Germany has given me a passion for sailing and - I’d say - a pragmatic mentality.

 WING MAN LAM

Lab Coordinator

I am currently a third-year undergraduate student and the lab coordinator of PANDM Lab.

I am double majoring in Psychology and Neuroscience, with research interests in decision-making and internalising disorders, particularly on its underlying mechanisms.

RIDDHI JAIN PITLIYA

I was born and raised in Hong Kong. Whilst I obtained my undergraduate degree (in psychology, neuroscience and cognitive science; with first honours) at The University of Hong Kong, I worked at the Psychopathology, Affective Neuroscience & Decision Making Laboratory (PANDM) and Experimental Psychopathology Laboratory as a senior research assistant and laboratory coordinator at both labs.  

I am currently obtaining a DPhil degree at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Prof. Robin A. Murphy at the Computational Psychopathology Laboratory. I examine individual differences in casual learning, attention and decision-making, and their associated neural signals, particularly along the depression and anxiety spectrum. I am interested in active inference and Bayesian models to understand the pathology of these psychological illnesses.
