Research Interests:

Prof. Hwang’s research program is generally devoted to the development and application of quantitative methods to address diverse issues in psychology and various other fields. His recent interests include the development of data integration tools for high-dimensional data collected from multiple sources; the development of a statistical methodology for investigating associations among genetic, brain, and behavioural/cognitive phenotypes; and the development and application of predictive models or machine learning algorithms for predicting behavioural and cognitive outcomes using genetic, physiological, and psychological data.
