Aaron Wong’s research focuses on understanding the relationship between comprehension and metacomprehension using a variety of techniques including eye movement monitoring, memory tests, function magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and computational modeling. He examines how people make metacomprehension judgments and how comprehension processes affect metacomprehension accuracy. He is also interested in how metacognition affects learning in other areas besides comprehension, such as mathematics and skill acquisition. Wong earned a Ph.D. in cognitive science from Mississippi State University. He also holds a B.S. in psychology and a B.A. in mathematics from the University of California San Diego.
