Happiness and well-being
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.
I hope we can improve our understanding about what makes people happier and educate people to make better choices in their lives.
I find scientific research exciting and motivating. I would like to dedicate my life to expanding our knowledge about ourselves, which is why I chose to study psychology.
I love the beauty of BC and Vancouver. I also love the research I am involved with.
My experience in Vancouver has been memorable and amazing in a myriad different ways.
Swimming, hiking, traveling, dancing, singing.
I would like to have an academic career and do research and teach at a university.
