  • Profile

    I am now a postdoc researcher at Department of Social Psychology, UvA, working with Dr. Disa Sauter.

    Before coming to UvA, I completed my PhD in social psychology with Dr. Alex Kogan at University of Cambridge (Jan 2018), my MRes of Cognitive Neuroscience with Dr. Sarah White at University College London (Sep 2013), and my BS in Psychology with Prof. Shihui Han at Peking University (July 2012). 

    I am now working on the positive emotion experience across cultures.


  • Research Interests

    My research interests include: Wellbeing, Emotion, Culture, Prosociality, Social Media, Social Class

    I use both quantitative methods (big data analysis, questionnaire, online and lab experiments, experience sampling method on smart phones) and qualitative method (such as theme coding interviews, content analysis) to research on these topics. I am specifically interested in applying computational methods in studying human wellbeing and emotions across different social classes and cultures.
