How does our brain select information and present it consciously to us? What happens to the unselected unconscious information? I am using psychophysics, eye tracking, EEG, fMRI, etc. to tackle these questions.

I am a James Boswell Postdoctoral Scholar working with Dr. Shinsuke Shimojo at Caltech and Dr. Xianghong Arakaki at the Huntington Medical Research Institutes. My research centers around various unconscious processes, attention, and brain imaging.

I got my PhD under the supervision of Dr. Po-Jang (Brown) Hsieh at Duke-NUS Medical School. I worked specifically on unconscious information processing, aiming to reveal the complexity of unconscious processing. Meanwhile, I studied melanopsin-containing photoreceptors via fMRI.
