I have always been interested in understanding how human memory works. More specifically, I am interested in how the brain encodes and retrieves temporal information. I am also interested in the underlying neural mechanisms that support subjective experience of remembering (e.g. meta-memory). I investigate these topics using behavior and brain imaging techniques such as TMS and fMRI.
Previously, I worked as a research assistant in Dr. Sze Chai Kwok's lab at NYU-ECNU Institute of Brain and Cognitive Science, where I worked on episodic memory and metacognition.
