I joined Lingnan University in 2022, having previously held academic positions at the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the University of Auckland, and the University of Wollongong. My research interests are in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience, specifically in visual perception of faces and objects, and visual attention. I have used a broad range of research methods to study these issues, including eye-tracking, EEG, and fMRI, as well as behavioural methods. I am Associate Editor of the British Journal of Psychology and Frontiers in Visual Neuroscience, and was formerly Associate Editor of Visual Cognition.
