Personal profile

Personal profile

Chinese Name : 劉月瑩

I completed my doctoral training at Dalhousie University, Vancouver Coastal Health, and the University of British Columbia, Canada, specializing in clinical psychology and clinical neuropsychology. I am a registered clinical psychologist of the Hong Kong Psychological Society and a registered psychologist of British Columbia, Canada. My clinical and research interests include the interaction between sleep and daytime functioning, neuropsychology of medical and psychiatric disorders, and spirituality and mental health. Currently, my primary line of research aims to uncover some of the complex relationships between sleep, emotional and cognitive functioning. I am also actively involved in a series of longitudinal investigations on the various psychosocial factors contributing to the formation and transformation of beliefs in Chinese.

Research interests

  • Sleep and sleep disorders
    • My research covers how sleep – including sleep quality, sleep problems, disorders, loss, deprivation and restriction – can affect daytime functioning, and also how our daytime behaviors and environmental factors such as stress, caffeine intake, napping, and occupational variables affect our night-time sleep. 
  • Clinical neuropsychology and neurocognitive functioning of healthy and patient populations
  • Forgiveness, spirituality, and mental health
