Vince Ngan - PhD student

I acquired my Bachelor and MPhil Degree in Psychology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. During my undergraduate study, I became increasingly interested in how experiences interact with our underlying cognitive architecture and subsequently the fundamental limits in perception and attention. My undergraduate thesis, under the supervision of Alan, concerns the potential relationship between creativity and multitasking.
