Greetings and Welcome!

I am a PhD candidate in the Psychology Department at the University of California, San Diego. My research program, broadly defined, addresses questions of: (a) how do human beings learn and retain educationally relevant information? and (b) how can learning and memory be optimized to yield durable, long-lasting understanding and retention? Previously, I completed my undergraduate studies via the Early Entrance Program at California State University, Los Angeles. My research is currently supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, an APA Early Graduate Student Researcher Award, and previously by an NIMH T34 Pre-Doctoral Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award. I can be reached at: stevencpan@ucsd.edu.


Workshops and Seminars

Interested in graduate school? If you are in the San Diego area, consider attending Paths to PhDs, a panel workshop series at UCSD where graduate students in the fields of psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience share insights on successfully applying to, and succeeding in, graduate school. Want to improve your study skills? At the How to Study Less and Remember More workshop, you’ll learn how to take advantage of the best learning techniques for maximum academic performance. Applying for competitive graduate fellowships such as the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship ? Here are my tips for crafting a winning entry.
