Dr. Yin Wang is currently the director of Social Network Neuroscience (SNN) Lab and Principle Investigator in State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning, and IDG/McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Beijing Normal University. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Psychology at the University of Nottingham in 2012, and continued his postdoctoral training at New York University and Temple University from 2013 to 2019.

Dr. Yin Wang is interested in the cognitive and neural processes underlying social cognition and social behavior (e.g. imitation, mind-reading, face processing, moral cognition, social decision making). He takes an integrative, multi-method approach, combining behavioral paradigms (motion capture, eye-tracking, psychophysiology), online survey, multimodal brain-imaging (fMRI, diffusion imaging), network neuroscience, and computational modeling techniques. His research has been published on high-profile journals such as Nature Human Behaviour, PNAS, Trends in Cognitive Sciences, Journal of Neuroscience.
