Interests

My lab investigates the prosociality and well-being from biological, psychological, and cross-cultural perspectives. In particular, we are highly interested in cooperation, trust, altruism, positive emotions, close relationships, happiness, physical and mental health, and cross-cultural differences. We employ methodology combining genetics, physiology, pharmacology, surveys, event-sampling, and large scale datasets.
