I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Mental Health of Older People at the Division of Psychiatry, funded by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan. After completing a master's degree in psychology in Taiwan and working as a research assistant in multiple fields (science education, medical education, and neurology), I started my PhD program in April 2019. 
Research Summary

My PhD research focuses on brief cognitive assessments for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia. I have been doing a systematic review and meta-analysis on the topic of brief cognitive assessments used in Chinese-speaking populations. Based on the results of the systematic review and meta-analysis, I culturally adapted a brief cognitive assessment in Taiwan and validated it on 90 participants. 

I am currently working on the validation of the Taiwanese version of social functioning in dementia scale (T-SF-DEM) in an international project between Taiwan and the UK.
