My primary research interest is to understand how human brains process multisensory information in order to construct a unified perception of the outside world.
My research investigates multisensory integration in terms of temporal synchrony and semantic congruency. I also take a developmental approach to understand multisensory perception, such as the typical developmental trajectory through infancy and childhood and the influence of early perceptual on later development experience.
So far my research focuses on interactions between vision, audition, and touch. I use human behavioural and eye-movement measures to investigate the above issues.
I completed my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees at National Taiwan University in Taiwan (supervisor: Prof. Su-Ling Yeh). In 2011, I completed my DPhil at University of Oxford (supervisor: Prof. Charles Spence). In my previous postdoc positions, I worked at Lancaster University (supervisor: Prof. Gert Westermann) and McMaster University in Canada (supervisor: Prof. Daphne Maurer and Prof. Terri Lewis).
