Short CV

Yung-Ting Tsou is a postdoc researcher in the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

Yung-Ting received her master degree in Linguistics from Leiden University in 2012. After that, she went back to Taiwan and worked in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at Chang-Gung Memorial Hospital, doing research on language and social development in children with hearing loss. With her aspiration to further study socioemotional functioning in children with hearing loss, she joined the Focusonemotions Lab at Leiden University in 2016, and obtained her PhD in November 2020. Supervised by Prof. dr. Carolien Rieffe, Prof. dr. Johan Frijns, Dr. Boya Li and Dr. Mariska Kret, her PhD research focused on emotion processing in deaf and hard-of-hearing children, using eye tracking and psychophysiological measurements.

Since 2021 Yung-Ting works as a postdoc researcher on the NWO-funded “Breaking the cycle” project to develop and implement an intervention scheme with and for autistic pupils that facilitates social participation and inclusion at schoolyards. In this project, the focus of research switches from autistic pupils themselves to the physical, cultural, and social environments surrounding them, aiming to create an inclusive climate in schools.

Research

Yung-Ting’s research focuses on how emotional, social, and linguistic information is perceived, accessed, and processed by children with communicative barriers, such as children with hearing loss or autism. She uses a multi-method approach that includes eye tracking, psychophysiological measures, observations, questionnaires, and wearable sensor technology.

Teaching

Yung-Ting gives lectures and teaches workgroups on the topic of child psychology. She also supervises Bachelor and Master students.

Supervised PhD candidates

Yung-Ting is the co-supervisor of the PhD candidate Shannon Yuen in her project on social-emotional functioning and family dynamics in deaf and hard-of-hearing children.
