Alan Wong - Principal investigator

I got my PhD in Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience at Vanderbilt University's Department of Psychology under the supervision of Isabel Gauthier and Tom Palmeri. While I was a student I also worked with and learned from Will Hayward and T.-C. Chan. Now I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. My research interest concerns with perceptual expertise, object recognition, digital experience, consciousness, etc.

Nicolson Siu - PhD student

I obtained my Bachelor Degree in Psychology from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. I am interested in exploring the relationship between the human brain and behaviors, especially the abnormal cognitive functions
associated with brain impairments. Therefore, I am now doing research on various type of training to enhance cognitive functions of individuals. Recently, I am also interested in studying the lifespan development of human time perception.

Vince Ngan - MPhil student

I acquired my Bachelor 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.

Terri Ng – Research Assistant

In past few years, I was responsible for data collection by behavioral and brain imaging methods (functional MRI and EEG). I love to get involve in scientific studies because I am curious to understand how our brain processes under certain circumstances. It can help to explain the human behaviors from the point of view in cognitive psychology.
