Di Fu was taking a joint PhD program from the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IPCAS), and the Informatics Department, University of Hamburg (WTM group). Di Fu successfully defended her PhD thesis titled “Interaction between Attentional Capture and Executive Control in Conflict Processing” on 11th May in the IPCAS. The thesis develops a novel research paradigm and reveals the interaction mechanism between bottom-up attentional capture and top-down executive control to the salient distractor in conflict tasks. The thesis also examines this mechanism in audiovisual crossmodal scenarios with human participants and the iCub robot, and its developmental trajectories in children, adolescents, and adults.
