Gloria Ho obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the National University of Singapore. Her research interests lie in understanding the mechanisms underlying learning and memory, as well as the mediating roles of emotion and motivation. In particular, she is keen in exploring how the interplay of these factors may promote self-discovery, self-development, and well-being.
