I completed the training necessary to be a clinical psychologist and received my master’s degree in clinical psychology from National Taiwan University in 2009. After finishing my civic military service in 2011, I joined Dr. Todd Heatherton’s lab at Dartmouth College, in pursuit of a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience.

My research interests include self-reflection and self-regulation by using behavioral and neuroimaging approaches. I also am interested in how cultural factors affect self-referential processing and self-regulation.

Outside of the lab, I like jogging, playing basketball, and scuba diving.
