I am Chuan-Peng Hu, a post-doc researcher in Prof. Raffael Kalisch’s group at Neuroimaging Center (NIC), University Medical Center Mainz, Mainz, Germany. We study the cognitive-neural mechanisms of resilience to stress.
In the past few years, the replication crisis in science made me really concerned about the scientific rigor in research practice. I increasingly believe that open science is the best way for basic research. Here is what I’ve done to promote the awareness of reproducibility and open science.
I grew up in a village near Yangtze River in Hubei, a central province of China. Childhood in rural area endowed me a natural love for the outdoors. Rock climbing, mountaineering, and hiking are my favorite activities outside academia. I’ve climbed four mountains over 5000 meters and reached about 6 km of the Chola Mountain, Sichuan Province, China in June 2014.
