Google: ""Joey Ka-Yee Essoe""
Joey, a lover of Irish whiskey, kittens, and Deuteronomy, was born and raised in Hong Kong under English rule. After completing the infamous HKCEE, she moved to San Francisco as she longed to be in a society tolerant of quirky and independent women. She has been interested in science and cognition since childhood, and had never envisioned anything but a life in research and academia. The fact that academia is the natural home for other quirky and independent people was a gratifying surprise.
Joey’s research interest lies (be ready for a very long sentence) in the intricate relationships between cognitive strategy/control, learning, and memory, their neural underpinnings, how they changes across lifespan, and factors that affect them (especially sleep quality). With such board interests, she works ceaselessly to learn to collaborate well, cultivate board interests while maintaining focus and productivity.
