Research

My main line of research examines cultural variations in decision making processes. I am trying to understand how people from various cultures approach decision making differently, and what may underlie these differences. The cultures that I study include national culture (i.e. East vs West) and socioeconomic status. My other line of research explores cultural differences in parenting and education. With the help of scholars around the world, my collaborator and I are interested in learning about the varying parenting styles and strategies across cultures (e.g. Denmark, US, Taiwan, UK, Singapore etc...)
