Last updated: 06 September 2019

Dr. HUANG received her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at National Yang Ming University, Taiwan. After working at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, National Taiwan Normal University and National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan, she joined City University of Hong Kong in 2016.  Her research is centered on understanding how meaning is organized, accessed and constructed in the brain. She does this by measuring electrical brain activities millisecond by millisecond as people look, read, listen, interpret, and make decisions.
