HILARY NGAI

PhD Student

I am a second-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 as a first-year PhD student to pursue 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.

MAGGIE SIN-YING LAW

Undergraduate Thesis Student

I’m a final year undergraduate student, currently doing my thesis in the lab on the valence of facial emotion expressions in context. My majors are Psychology and English Studies. I first joined the lab because of my passion in psychopathology but ended up discovering an interest in cognitive psychology topics (e.g facial emotion perception) as well. Life doesn’t always go as planned — in the best way possible! I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

VRITTI VASWANI

Undergraduate Thesis Student

I am currently an undergraduate thesis student with Dr.Jin, doing a Bachelors of Social Science. I double major in psychology and counselling, with a minor in Human Resource management.
My thesis has a research topic of examining whether emotions and attitudes are associated with compliance to adopt health-protective behaviours during COVID-19.
My research interests lie within abnormal psychology, more specifically the etiology development and maintenance of different disorders.

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.
