Hsin-Hung Li is an assistant professor in the Psychology Department at The Ohio State University. He received his B.S. and M.S. degree from National Taiwan University, and earned his Ph.D. in Psychology from New York University, working with David Heeger and Marisa Carrasco. Before joining OSU, he was a postdoctoral researcher in New York University, working with Wei Ji Ma and Clayton Curtis. His research focuses on the computational and neural processes underlying humans’ decision-making (e.g., how do people access their confidence or uncertainty when making a decision?), attention (e.g., how does attention improve the quality of perception and decisions) and working memory (e.g., what is the format of working memory?). He draws methods from computational cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience, and uses computational modeling to link behavioral measurements with neuroimaging.

Dr. Li is recruiting Ph.D. students, postdocs and a research assistant for 2024. Contact Dr. Li or enter the lab webpage for more information.
