I am a research scientist who has worked and studied extensively in the fields of child psychology, behavioral health, and neuroscience. I have had substantial experience with writing, editing, and peer-reviewing scientific manuscripts and grant proposals. I've also written and edited numerous successful personal statements for my own scholarly pursuits and also to help friends, colleagues, and students.
我的研究方向是儿童心理学， 行为科学以及脑科学，并且我在这些领域积攒了非常多的经验。 我在修改审阅科学手稿以及基金援助研究报告方面有非常丰富的经验。 不仅为我自己，我为我的同事以及学生修改过许多个人陈述文书。
Over the course of my academic and research career, I have met many brilliant scientists who are unable to share their research broadly because, for various reasons, they have difficulty composing a concise and coherent manuscript In an unofficial capacity, I have served as an ad-hoc editor for colleagues for whom English is not the native language. In particular, visiting scientists from China often feel more comfortable asking for my help because I am the daughter of Chinese immigrants and I speak Mandarin Chinese. I have also been gratified to mentor several research assistants as they were in the process of applying to graduate schools in the United States. These students are smart, diligent, and innovative but they have trouble conveying those qualities in a cogent written statement because English is not their native language. Over the years I have come to realize that I not only have a knack for helping in this capacity, but I find the process to be truly rewarding I am thrilled to join ZHISHIQ, a program that enables talented individuals to pursue their goals.
在我的学术生涯中，我有幸遇到很多才华横溢的科学家但是他们没有办法在科学手稿中完整清晰的表达他们的想法。 我也帮助过一些英语不是母语的同事修改润色论文。尤其是来自中国的访问学者特备喜欢寻求我的帮助因为我的服务是华人并且我可以说普通话。 同时，我也帮助过一些研究助理申请美国研究员项目。 这些学生才华横溢而且富有妆造粒但是他们没有办法在文书中有效展现这一点因为英语不是他们的母语。 在芝士圈的工作经历让我感到非常有价值因为芝士圈旨在帮助这些有才华的人实现他们的人生目标。

Gray Matters Fellowship
Gray Matters at Columbia
Gray Matters at Columbia is a research fellowship fund within Columbia University Medical Center's Department of Psychiatry that provides support for outstanding scientists dedicated to searching for the causes and cures of brain disorders. I received the award for my work using fMRI to examine the neural underpinnings of emotion processing in individuals with autism spectrum disorders
Differences in neural activity when processing emotional arousal and valence in autism spectrum disorders.
Tseng, A., Wang, Z., Huo, Y., Goh, S., Russell, J. A., & Peterson, B. S.Human Brain Mapping
Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often have difficulty recognizing and interpreting facial expressions of emotion, which may impair their ability to navigate and communicate successfully in their social, interpersonal environments. Characterizing specific differences between individuals with ASD and their typically developing (TD) counterparts in the neural activity subserving their experience of emotional faces may provide distinct targets for ASD interventions. Thus we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and a parametric experimental design to identify brain regions in which neural activity correlated with ratings of arousal and valence for a broad range of emotional faces. Participants (51 ASD, 84 TD) were group-matched by age, sex, IQ, race, and socioeconomic status. Using task-related change in blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) fMRI signal as a measure, and covarying for age, sex, FSIQ, and ADOS scores, we detected significant differences across diagnostic groups in the neural activity subserving the dimension of arousal but not valence. BOLD-signal in TD participants correlated inversely with ratings of arousal in regions associated primarily with attentional functions, whereas BOLD-signal in ASD participants correlated positively with arousal ratings in regions commonly associated with impulse control and default-mode activity. Only minor differences were detected between groups in the BOLD signal correlates of valence ratings. Our findings provide unique insight into the emotional experiences of individuals with ASD. Although behavioral responses to face-stimuli were comparable across diagnostic groups, the corresponding neural activity for our ASD and TD groups differed dramatically. The near absence of group differences for valence correlates and the presence of strong group differences for arousal correlates suggest that individuals with ASD are not atypical in all aspects of emotion-processing. Studying these similarities and differences may help us to understand the origins of divergent interpersonal emotional experience in persons with ASD.
Using the circumplex model of affect to study valence and arousal ratings of emotional faces by children and adults with autism spectrum disorders.
Tseng, A., Bansal, R., Liu, J., Gerber, A., Goh, S., Posner, J., Colibazzi, T., Algermissen, M., Chiang, I., Russell, J., Peterson, B.Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders
The affective circumplex model holds that emotions can be described as linear combinations of two underlying, independent neurophysiological systems (arousal, valence). Given research suggesting individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have difficulty processing emotions, we used the circumplex model to compare how individuals with ASD and typically-developing (TD) individuals respond to facial emotions. Participants (51 ASD, 80 TD) rated facial expressions along arousal and valence dimensions; we fitted closed, smooth, 2-dimensional curves to their ratings to examine overall circumplex contours. We modeled individual and group influences on parameters describing curve contours to identify differences in dimensional effects across groups. Significant main effects of diagnosis indicated the ASD-group’s ratings were constricted for the entire circumplex, suggesting range constriction across all emotions. Findings did not change when covarying for overall intelligence.
