Dr Du Lei

Research Fellow


King's College London

Research summary

My research interests center on the biological and cognitive underpinnings of mental illness and psychopathology, and the means by which such changes may be translated for clinical diagnostic, and/or prognostic purposes. To date, my work has largely focused on those alterations that occur in the earliest stages of psychosis, and how these may be used to inform clinical decision making at the level of the individual, through the application of brain connectome/graph theoretical analysis and supervised machine learning techniques. More recently, my current research focuses on the use of deep learning techniques to improve diagnostic and prognostic assessment in psychiatry, which could greatly increases the likelihood that the results can be translated into a tool that is useful in a real world clinical setting.
