Welcome to my personal page :)

I am currently a graduate student in Dr. Sarah DuBrow's and Dr. Ben Hutchinson's labs at University of Oregon.

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.

I have always been interested in understanding how memory works using naturalistic ways. More specifically, I am interested in how real-life experience are stored to and retrieved from memory, as well as the how neural patterns transform from encoding to retrieval. I am also interested in the underlying neural mechanisms that support subjective experience of remembering (e.g. memory metacognition). I investigate these topics using behavior and brain imaging techniques such as TMS and fMRI.
