Dr Chun Shen

Dr Chun Shen is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Fudan University; a Visiting Researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience; and an Affiliated Postdoc at Clare Hall.

Dr Shen has a multidisciplinary educational background including Philosophy (bachelor, 2011), Psychology (master, 2013), and Biomedical Engineering (PhD, 2020). Her research interests are focused on two main areas: (1) utilizing imaging genetics and big data to investigate the neural mechanisms of developmental disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism; (2) investigating the impact of social factors (such as social networks, marital relationships, social isolation, loneliness, etc.) on brain and mental health, and the underlying neurobiological mechanisms.
