Positive emotions lie at the core of my research interests. Broadly speaking, I examine how ‘feel good’ emotions relate to social and psychological phenomena. These include expressive behaviours, cultural norms, prosocial outcomes, and socioeconomic status.
I am currently employed as a Doctoral Researcher at the University of Amsterdam (Netherlands), where I am jointly supervised by Agneta Fischer and Disa Sauter. For my PhD project, we investigate how multiple positive emotions are expressed (through a mix of facial and bodily actions), and evaluate the role of social and cultural factors in regulating these emotion displays.
Prior to this, I completed an MPhil in Psychology at the University of Queensland (Australia), and an MSc in Social Cognition at University College London (United Kingdom). My academic journey started at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), where I read a double major in Psychology (BA Hons) and History.
