Happiness and well-being
Social Cognition and Emotion Lab
My research focuses on the emotional experience of people. The topics that I am currently investigating range from what gives (or takes away from) people's experience of meaning in life to how people react to shame and guilt, and to what extent new technologies introduce stress and anxiety in our lives.
What do you hope to accomplish with your research?
I hope we can improve our understanding about what makes people happier and educate people to make better choices in their lives.
What are your future career goals?
I would like to have an academic career and do research and teach at a university.
Why did you choose to come to British Columbia and study at UBC?
I love the beauty of BC and Vancouver. I also love the research I am involved with.
What has been your most memorable Vancouver experience so far?
My experience in Vancouver has been memorable and amazing in a myriad different ways.
