My research focuses on the interplay between cultural contexts and psychological processes. To understand dynamic ways in which culture and psychological processes mutually shape and sustain each other, the specific aims of my research programs are threefold: (i) to illuminate cultural differences in emotion (pro-positive/contra-negative vs. balanced systems of emotions) and cognition (i.e., holistic/dialectical vs. analytic/linear) and their health implications, (ii) to examine multilevel influences of culture and social hierarchy on psychological processes, and (iii) to elucidate effects of inter-cultural interactions (e.g., acculturation processes).
