Tzu-Yun "Alice" Kung (龔姿云)

Currently, I’m a senior student at National Tsing Hua University who majors in both psychology and medical science. I’m interested in many things that are related to humans, so I take (too) many courses that are related to psychology and biology. And that’s why my friends usually say that they think I look like a tired sleepy panda (especially the “yururin panda”).

Ways and methods to interpret and indicate this process always draw my attention, and my interest in research that sheds light on basic psychological concepts or knowledge is usually stronger than for applied psychological studies.
