01 Description of Research

I specialize in group dynamics and cultural psychology, focusing on the dynamic processes by which the individual mind and the social environment are mutually constituted. In particular, I am interested in how group norms and cultures are created and maintained over time. I address these research questions by conducting small-group experiments in the laboratory to observe minimal behavioral chains, while also conducting fieldwork in social settings to track the constant changes in people’s shared beliefs and habits.
