Alan received his PhD from the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). After graduation, he worked at École Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Paris as a postdoctoral researcher. He had been an assistant professor at the Division of Psychology at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore before joining Lingnan in January 2016. He is broadly interested in research on sensation and perception, focusing on vision, adaptation, learning, and metacognition.
