Yan Wu

Yan is a first year PhD student from the Ecological Brain DTP at UCL, on rotation at the Affective Lab. She is interested in investigating human decision making in controlled lab conditions versus the real world, which are two environments that contrast in certainty, familiarity, etc. Before starting her PhD, she completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Cambridge. During her undergraduate studies, she completed summer internships with Professor Hailan Hu at Zhejiang University, investigating social hierarchy in mice, and Professor Si Wu at Peking University, working on computational models for memory and learning.
