Prof. Xiangbin Teng

Xiangbin Teng

Hong Kong University

Former postdoctroral researcher

Xiangbin joined the lab in September 2021 as a postdoc researcher. Before that he worked in Max Planck Institutes in Frankfurt am Main and Berlin, and earned my PhD in Cognition and Perception at New York University, M.Sc. at Peking University, and B.Sc. at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In September 2022, I will join t

After leaving the lab he oined the Department of Psychology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor. For more information, please visit his website: https://sites.google.com/site/xiangbinteng2
