I’m interested in investigating the mechanisms of depth information integration and process. My current project is in hybrid glass pattern perception and perceptual learning using neuroimaging technique.


I have a BSc and a MSc in Psychology from National Chengchi University in Taiwan, investigating spatial attention on multistable motion perception with Professor Shwu-Lih Huang. I also worked for a year as a research associate, investigating creativity with Professor Yu-Chu Yeh.
