Research and Innovation Interests

I am a lifespan developmental psychologist and a research group leader focusing on cognitive activities and psychological well-being across adulthood. I use qualitative and quantitative methods, collect real world evidence (e.g., smartphone sensing, wearables) and use interdisciplinary approaches in data analytics (e.g., machine learning) to understand and promote healthy human development and longevity. The two cognitive activities I mainly study are lifelong learning and memory functions.

  • Lifelong learning, digital learning tools
  • E-learning in older age: Needs, challenges, opportunities, platform development, content development
  • Memory functions across the adult life span (e.g., reminiscence, mental time travel, mind wandering)
  • Healthy cognitive aging and well-being
  • Behavior and context detection in real-life audio and speech data
