Dr Myoungju Shin

PhD, B.Sc. (Hons)

I completed my BSc at Otago University, and received my BSc (Hons) and Ph.D. at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. My Ph.D. was on the cognitive processes involved in visual attention and perception. 

My research interests include cognition, visual attention, visual perception, memory and learning.

Currently, I have projects on media multitasking and working memory capacity, visual crowding and value driven attention.
