I am currently a doctoral student in the Combined Program in Education and Psychology at the University of Michigan. I study how external and internal distractions affect cognitive performance and how we can reduce their impact. I use eye-tracking in both lab and real-world settings to study how people manage their attention when facing distractions.
To pursue these interests, I work with Dr. Kevin Miller and Dr. Kai Cortina on distractions during reading and learning. I work with Dr. John Jonides on mind-wandering of people with ADHD. I also work with Dr. Priti Shah on individual differences in attention, learning, and self-control.
Before coming to Michigan in 2014, I majored in Psychology at Beijing Normal University.
