My research focuses on how health-related factors affects typical and atypical brain development. My ongoing work continuous to examine how different dimensions of fitness (e.g., physical fitness, cognitive-motor skills) and how manipulation of the characteristics (e.g., modality, intensity) of exercise modulate performance across different domains of cognition in typically developing children, children with ADHD, or individuals affected by obesity. My research also addresses how exercise modulates other aspects of mental health (e.g., cravings for food via changes in brain function, anxiety). I am particularly interested in the underlying neuroelectric (e.g., EEG) and cardiac-autonomic (e.g., HRV) mechanisms that may drive exercise-induced changes in cognition, memory, and emotion, as well as how a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms favors the development of effective interventions targeting brain health.
I completed my PhD in exercise psychophysiology in the Sport and Exercise Psychophysiology Laboratory at National Taiwan Normal University (Taiwan) in 2018. Afterwards, I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Center for Cognitive and Brain Health at Northeastern University (United States) between 2019 to 2021. I joined Kingston University as a Lecturer in September 2021.
