Chooi Weng Tink
Dr.


B. Eng. – Biomedical Engineering (Orthopaedic Biomaterials); Case Western Reserve M.A., PhD. – Experimental Psychology; Case Western Reserve University, Ohio USA

Dr. Chooi completed her undergraduate education in Biomedical Engineering. While working in an orthopaedic biomaterial laboratory as a technician, she realized her interests and expertise lie elsewhere. Dr. Chooi completed her doctorate in Experimental Psychology, focusing on working memory training and intelligence. Her research now focuses on what happens during working memory training and how cognitive functions are affected in opioid, stimulant (amphetamine) and ketum use. Dr. Chooi completed her post-doctoral training at Yale School of Medicine. She is now collaborating with leading experts in working memory from Kyoto University, University of Edinburgh, University of Geneva and University of Fribourg, Switzerland.
