Hyungwook Yim, PhD
Hyungwook received his PhD in Developmental Psychology and Computational Modeling from the Ohio State University in 2015, where he worked with Vladimir Sloutsky. From 2016 to 2021, he was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow working with Simon Dennis, where he followed the lab from the University of Newcaslte to the University of Melbourne in Australia. He is currently an Assistant Professor in Cognitive Sciences at Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea. As a computational cognitive scientist, his research focuses on specifying the mechanisms that enable us to learn and acquire knowledge, and understanding how these learning mechanisms change over time, through experience, and development. Methodologically, he has been examining human behavior, and building computational models that better explain these behavioral patterns.
