Dr. Yee Pin Tio earned her Ph.D. in Psychology from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in December 2020. She completed a Graduate Certificate in Gerontology focusing on cognitive decline among the elderly population and memory care services in the Southern Illinois region.

Dr. Tio's research investigates the link between language and cognition by examining how language-specific features and language experiences (bilingualism and multilingualism) play a role in influencing one's cognitive processes. Additionally, she is interested in exploring clinical language markers among bilingual and multilingual speakers, specifically in the cases of aphasia and dementia.
