Areas of expertise: 

The long-term goal of Dr. Chai’s research program is to understand the relation between brain organization and cognitive development. Her work examines how large-scale brain networks support learning, memory and language.

Dr. Chai is particularly interested in the neural developmental processes underlying these cognitive functions from children to adults, and how experience and disease can alter brain organization. Her research methodology includes behavioural, brain imaging (fMRI, resting-state fMRI, DWI) and computational approaches.
