Biography

Minyu Chang is a fifth-year PhD student in the Memory and Neuroscience Lab (PI: Charles Brainerd) in the Department of Psychology at Cornell University. Before joining the graduate program at Cornell, she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Hong Kong. The overarching goal of her research is to understand the cognitive and metacognitive processes that govern learning and memory and the developmental changes in these processes across the human life span. Therefore, her research revolves around three connected topics: episodic memory, metamemory, and cognitive aging. Specifically, she has implemented behavioral experimentation and mathematical modeling to understand the semantic factors that affect memory processes, the metacognitive processes that regulate learning, and the developmental and disease trajectories in cognition during late adulthood.
