Jing Feng is an Assistant Professor in the Human Factors and Applied Cognition Program at the Department of Psychology, North Carolina State University. She completed her undergraduate study at Zhejiang University in China, and received her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Toronto in Canada. Prior to joining NC State, she received postdoctoral training at the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest on cognitive neuroscience of aging, and at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Toronto, on human factors in driving.
Dr. Feng conducts research integrating theories of attention and relevant applications in human factors. On the theoretical side, she studies attention across the visual field, individual differences and age-related changes in attention, as well as the effects of cognitive training. On the practical side, she applies these theoretical findings to understand aging and driving, driver distraction, driver-automation interaction, and the design of information displays.
