Personal Info:
I am working with Dr. Brown Hsieh and Dr. Trevor Penney on investigating visual processing, visual mental imagery, and cortical organization of visual pathways using behavioural techniques and neuroimaging. I am broadly interested in imagination, attention, and how our expectations change our visual experience. My prior experience includes investigating vision loss with head- and eye-tracking and virtual environments (with Dr. Eliezer Peli), and using artificial neural networks to evaluate neurological damage to visual system (with Dr. Stephen Kosslyn).

Personal Info:
In 2013, I graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with first class honors in psychology. I also began my candidature in the NUS Master of Social Sciences (Psychology) research program in the same year. Thus far, my primary experimental research has revolved around cognitions and metacognitions related to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and is consistently designed with the aim of integrating pertinent findings from the clinical and cognitive psychological literatures for insights – whether of a theoretical or therapy-informing nature – into the OC phenomenon. My specific researched topics include the dimensional approach to psychopathology as applied to OC-relevant semantic memory and memory confidence, as well as association splitting of OC-relevant semantic links. My current research topics include thought-action fusion and inflated responsibility beliefs in relation to OC symptomatology, as well as the ameliorability of such constructs via induced cognitive dissonance. In my secondary research engagement, I have since uncovered novel cognitive predictors of compulsive buying in undergraduates in East Asia. My OCD research aspirations abound, and I am always looking out for collaborative research opportunities, international or otherwise.

I seek to understand how patients with debilitating chronic illnesses cope with their conditions. The worrying global trend of increasing rates of chronic diseases (e.g. kidney failure and obesity) clearly warrants a need for scientific inquiry into effective interventions so as to improve these patients' conditions and better inform health policies.

Hi! I am interested in emotions research specifically, in the effects of amazement and the experience of watching a magic performance. My research deals with trying to understand the cognitive effects of being in an amazed state and factors that would contribute to amazement. I draw my research ideas from my groundwork as a magic performer in which I test my anecdotal data in a lab setting.
