Tan, Yia Chin

PhD student

Yia Chin is interested in experimental existential psychology, and is currently working with Dr Jia Lile to explore on topics such as meaning-making in goal pursuit, creativity, and mortality salience. Having also a budding interest in neuroscience, she had a brief stint working as a research assistant in Dr Jean Liu's Social Neuro-Endocrinology Research Group (Synergy Lab) in Yale-NUS. When taking breaks, Yia Chin enjoys decorating the whiteboard (in the graduate students' room) with character drawings from the PhDcomic and taking comfort that graduate students across the world are all in this “together”.
