Yubei Tang


Yubei Tang is a rising senior at Rutgers, currently studying mechanical engineering with a minor in math. Yubei started in the lab as a volunteer and has continued as a 2014 Aresty student. This summer she is an REU fellow at Louisiana State University.

Her research focuses on using mobile application reminders to  integrate memory cues in order to improve health decision making and medication adherence. In her free time, she enjoys swimming, hiking, and gardening. After graduation, she wants to buy an RV and drive around North America for a year. Then she plans to go to graduate school in order to pursue research in cognitive science or robotics.
