Hongyi (Rebecca) Wang (PhD) Implicit learning and behavioural economics

I am currently working with Professor Ben Jones on an ERC-funded project investigating how exogenous hormones affect women's perceptions, behaviours and appearance. I will begin a a tenure-track senior research fellowship at East China Normal University in Shanghai in 2017.

My research interests focus on the factors that modulate people's facial preferences. I am also interested in cross-cultural variations in social judgments of faces.

I graduated from East China Normal University in 2013 with an MSc in psychology. My previous research investigated the implicit learning of task-irrelevant perceptual sequences. My PhD research, funded by the Chinese Scholarship Council, focused on the implicit learning of trait-appearance associations.
