I gained my BSc qualifications in Rehabilitation from The Chengdu Medical College (2015). Then I received the MSc degrees in Sport and Health Sciences at The University of Exeter (2019), where I’m pursuing the PhD degree.

My research relates to the topic of visual search, both in older adults and people with neurological conditions, such as Parkinson's. I am interested in developing strategies to improve the mobility of elder people with Parkinson disease (especially related to Freezing of Gait) and also the influence of anxiety on balance & gait performance.
