Yunlai Gui

Lab Manager

Yunlai recently graduated from New York University with a major in psychology and a minor in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies. Her main responsibility in the lab is running participants, assisting with research, and doing administrative work. Before coming to Vanderbilt, she worked with Dr. Cheryl Corcoran at the Mount Sinai Hospital, investigating risk factors and biomarkers for patients with psychosis. She is interested in emotional regulation, early adversity, and language deficits in people with psychosis. She also wants to explore more about how depression, anxiety, and psychosis together contribute to motor or bodily abnormalities, ideally with a cross-cultural approach. She plans to pursue a doctoral degree in clinical psychology in the future. In her free time, she likes gardening and hiking with friends!
