The Emotions Lab welcomes a new graduate student, Olivia
Olivia (Fangyun) Zhao begins her PhD in Psychology at UW this fall. She will be co-advised by Dr. Bilge Mutlu from Computer Science. As an undergrad at UW majoring in Psychology and Statistics, Olivia worked as a research assistant in both the Niedenthal Emotions Lab and Dr. Mutlu's Human-Computer Interaction Lab. She realized all the ways in which her work in one lab complemented her work in the other, and decided to help bridge the research interests of Dr. Niedenthal and Dr. Mutlu. Her first year project will use cutting-edge measurement technology from CS to examine questions our lab asks about human nonverbal behavior.
