Dr Haemy Lee Masson

Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology


I earned a Ph.D. in Brain Imaging Engineering in 2016 at Korea University and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at KU Leuven (Belgium) and Johns Hopkins University (USA). I am also a guest scientist at Johns Hopkins and MPI for Intelligente System.

My research goal is to better understand the neural basis of social-affective processing in neurodiverse populations. I use naturalistic neuroimaging (fMRI and EEG) and computational modeling (deep learning and natural language processing). Currently, I focus on investigating social touch (scene) processing in autistic adults. 

If you are looking for an academic mentor and interested in social neuroscience and autism research, please get in touch.
