Xiao Yang

Graduate Student Researcher

I am a second-year doctoral student working with Drs. Nilam Ram and Scott Gest. My research interest has been focusing on intensive longitudinal data analysis (especially multivariate time-series analysis), network analysis and complex developmental processes. I received a Bachelor degree in automation engineering and a Master degree in Computer Science from Tsinghua University, and a Master degree in Statistics from Columbia University. When studying at Columbia, I also worked with Dr. Geraldine Downey and her Social Relations Lab on unique social cognitive patterns of Borderline Personality Disorder patients, including rejection sensitivity, emotion recognition, and impulsivity.
