I love creating stuff.


After graduating with a bachelor's degree in BA diplomacy, I took a turn to study human. Currently a graduate studying for MSc Psychology of Arts, Neuroaesthetics and Creativity at Goldsmiths Unievrsity. I am recently fascinated by the transportation of originated sensorymotor information to the completely opposite hemisphere in human brain. Previously trained at Modelling and Informatics Lab in Taiwan and experiences in doing research, where the lab focuses on using informatic tools to solve social psychological issues. I have passion for organizing and managing data. Specialized in R and familiar with Python. I am currently searching for opportunities in data analysis and data visualisation positions in London. My thesis focus is on human perception and attention and its affect on information processing. I dream to apply cognitive psychology into designing data visualisations for accurate information to be more efficiently processed by readers. Apart from my professions I enjoy reading, jogging and playing the violin in my freetime.


The generative art background patterns were created with openFrameworks. Those projects are realised in the context of the Workshops in Creative Coding module as part of MSc Psychology, neuroaesthetics and creativity degree. Assignments, inspirations and parts of the source code provided by Theo Papatheodorou. Except for the brain image, which was taken by fMRI, and finalised by Adobe Photoshop.

Retrieval-Induced Forgetting Phenomena: A meta-analysis


“Within-individual Retrieval-induced Forgetting” (WI-RIF) refers to the phenomenon that an individual’s selective retrieval of items (Rp+) often causes more forgetting of categorically related and yet unrehearsed items (Rp-) than categorically unrelated and unrehearsed items (Nrp). WI-RIF has been also reported in social settings as “Socially-shared Retrieval-induced Forgetting” (SS-RIF). For example, when a group of people mention parts of their shared experience in conversations, both speakers and listeners suffer from forgetting of related and yet unmentioned memory.

We conducted meta-regression on 59 studies.


Overall results show the Practice Effect is negatively correlated to the Suppression Effect when the practice session were free conversations (blue dots).

Memorability Bias: The more memorable the material, the more likely it is to be mentioned in a conversation and to be subsequently remembered (Cue et al., 2007).

Therefore, we are interested to test Memorability Bias under both free conversation and non-free conversation practice sessions.

Our hypothesis is the large effect size of Socially-shared Retrieval-induced Frogetting under free-conversations and the negative correlation is due to the effect of Memorability Bias.

We further test this hypothesis by conducting experiments.

The Underlying Mechanism of Socially-Shared Retireival-Induced Forgetting

Conducting experiment on a young group of people aged between 20~35, and an older group aged above 60. The results as following aligned to the meta-analysis.

The figure below shows that the more memorable the item, the more likely it is to be recalled during practice, becoming a Rp+ items, whereas the less memorable items are less recalled during practice. Therefore, becomes Rp- items more often. So apart from the RIF effect, the Memorability Bias is having an affect on the large effect size.
