Jung-Hoon Kim, Research Postdoctoral Fellow, joined the Developing Brain Institute at Children’s National in March 2021. His primary research topic is characterizing the development of fetal brain connectivity over varying gestational ages. Before joining the Institute, he obtained his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Purdue University where he developed an unsupervised deep generative model that can learn latent representations of resting-state and movie-watching fMRI data of young adults. These non-linear representations of fMRI data are critical to more deeply understanding the brain system because they better characterize brain networks under different brain states with robust individual identifiability.
