Bing holds a Masters of Science in Neuroscience from Queen’s University and an Honours Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology from University of Winnipeg. During the two years of the life of her masters, she worked as a psychometric rater in a geriatric clinic where she received great experience in performing various tests assessing the patients and extensive knowledge in understanding dementia. By interacting with patients and their caregivers, she gained a deep understanding of what was like to live with the disease and how it may impact on the lives of the family members. Never take life for granted. Be thankful and appreciate what you have.
Her research interests include age-related diseases (i.e., dementia), quality of life of older adults, people with dementia and their caregivers, assistive technologies and human-centred design. Specifically, she is interested in how technology can help people age gracefully and assist caregivers in supporting care; How technology can be developed/designed that reflect user's needs and requirements.
Bing has been involved in various study projects.
Examples of research Bing is currently involved include:
- Ubiquitous robotics to support older adutls with dementia
- Detecting behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia using multimodal sensors
- Driving cessation and dementia
- Toward developing an assistive technology framework for older adults with dementia: A User-Centred Design Approach
- Evaluation of an outpatient upper limb robotic therapy program for older adult chronic stroke survivors
As a lab manager, Bing manages the lab on a daily basis, such as lab resources and personnels. Additionally, Bing provides guidance for writing ethics documents, such as protocol and the consent forms. She assists in the preparation and submission of ethics for the lab's projects.
