Ping is currently a PhD student working in the motivational and cognitive control lab of Roshan Cools, co-supervised by Hanneke den Ouden. For her research, Ping is interested in the role of dopamine and motivation in action and planning: how motivation and dopamine affect our daily decisions, such as choosing to drink a cola or water after sports.
Prior to her journey to the Netherlands, Ping was an enthusiastic psychology student, fascinated by many fun topics such as consciousness and social interaction. In her free time, Ping enjoys keeping track of the little things (by diary or picture), going on adventurous journeys (“okay, just traveling, I admit”) and eating (“I am also an excellent cook”).
