Alumni Conversations — Gavin Ng

Wondering what is out there after graduation? 

The beloved Alumni Conversations are back! These are sessions where we invite our very own Psychology alumni, who are now in various fields and stages in life, to share their personal experiences and knowledge.

We have invited alumnus Gavin Ng, who is currently a third-year PhD student in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as a part of the vision lab. Gavin obtained his Bachelor of Social Sciences (with First Class Honours) in Psychology from NUS in 2015, where he was a research assistant in several labs. He was also a research intern in the Neuroimaging Lab at Duke-NUS Medical School.

You might remember Gavin as the author of the Advice for Seniors. He actively supports Psychology students through sharing experiences and knowledge regarding graduate school matters. He was also a FASS mentor for 2 years back in NUS, providing advice about modules, opportunities to students.

Join us on this exciting afternoon to chat with Gavin, as he shares his extensive insights to graduate schools, experiences from undergrad, and more! All are welcomed! RSVP at, refer to the poster for more details.

See you there!:)
