About me

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Computational Social Affective Neuroscience Laboratory in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Dartmouth College. I take an interdisciplinary approach, including machine learning, neuroimaging, and computational modeling to study social interactions and their impact on beliefs, feelings, and behaviors in cross-cultural and clinical contexts.

Before moving to the U.S., I completed my training as a licensed clinical psychologist in Taiwan. In 2017, I received my Ph.D. at Dartmouth College. During my doctoral training, I examine the acculturation processes of immigrants as they adapt to a new culture, allowing us to understand their social and affective experiences during acculturation. Besides of my research in acculturation, I developed a smartphone app called Appetite Tamer to help dieters change their dieting behaviors.

In February 2020, I will join the faculty at National Taiwan University as an assistant professor in Department of Psychology in Taipei, Taiwan. I will have positions available for a lab manager, research assistants, master students, and PhD students. If you are interested in joining the lab or collaborating on cross-cultural projects, please contact me.
