Hi, I am Mercury, an MPhil student of Dr. Janet Hsiao. I completed Bachelar of Social Sciences (major in psychology) at HKU. I'm interested in perception and cognition in general. My current research topic is about multimodality integration in dynamic emotion expression perception and how eye movement strategies modulate this process. I'm also investigating the role of eye movement pattern in multimedia learning. My previous research includes sensorimotor adaptation in virtual reality and the effect of face drawing experience on face perception performance.
