Biographical details

Ling is a Postgraduate Research Fellow and PhD candidate at the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation (CRLI) at The University of Sydney. Her PhD research is in the field of developmental science, neurosciece and education. The project investigates how the implementation of a purposely designed tablet game might influence young children's empathic learning and development at a brain and behaviour level by combining electroencephalogram (EEG) and longitudinal microgenetic methods. Ling's research Fellow work is in the field of Learning Sciences, she is currently working on projects related to Teacher Data Literacy in Higher Education contexts, co-creating innovative design that support effective teaching and learning.
