Tzu-ching Chiang, PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychology
My major has been Psychology since I was in a university. I received my Ph.D. degree, and post-doctoral experience at University College London (UCL), UK. The research tools I have used most, in addition to computer behavourial tests, are transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). My main work has been on the basic mechanisms of higher-level cognition such as visual perception and attention, specializing in the visual binding mechanism. In 2012, I was a visiting scholar at Ohio State University, researching into visual illusion. Since 2014, I have been assisting TMS study in grasp mechanisms and rhythm perception, and taking projects of statistical analysis at Western University, London Ontario.
I was born and grew up in Taiwan (the official country name is “Republic of China”, different from “People’s Republic of China”, which is commonly called Mainland China), where I met and married to my wife, Ying-Ying, before we went to UCL. We have 2 children, a girl and a boy. I want my kids to keep God’s words and to follow Jesus’s instructions.
I hope students will not regret studying at Briercrest while they are graduating. Besides, what I really want is that the time they spent in at Briercrest will be one of their most cherished memory by transforming their lives based on God desires and the love and grace of Jesus.
