Hi there! I am a postdoctoral fellow working with Dr. John Jonides in the Department of Psychology of the University of Michigan. My research focuses on understanding how our cognitive system manages distractions and interference, as well as exploring the origins of individual differences in this capacity. I frequently employ eye-tracking to investigate these issues, as it provides valuable insights into the real-time deployment of our visual attention. I also regularly use other methods such as computational modeling and structural equation modeling in my work. I am also actively learning brain imaging methods to expand my toolkit.
From 2014 to 2020, I was a Ph.D. student in the Combined Program in Education and Psychology at the University of Michigan. I worked with Dr. Kevin Miller and Dr. Kai Cortina on gaze patterns during mind-wandering. Before coming to Michigan, I majored in Psychology at Beijing Normal University from 2010 to 2014.
