Chua Wei Ting Serena

Biographical Profile

Serena completed her BSocSci (Hons) in Psychology at Nanyang Technological University. During her undergraduate studies, she was deeply involved in working with young children with special needs and projects that employed neuroimaging techniques (e.g., electroencephalography (EEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).  

Research Interests

Serena is particularly interested in neural networks revolving language and reading, as well as the neural networks that are characteristic of learning disabilities. She believes strongly in educational neuroscience (the Science of Learning) which bridges together elements of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and educational psychology. In the future, she hopes to play a key role in being able to translate such research findings to better inform current practices and policies.
