How does culture influence people's feelings? To investigate this question, our lab uses a variety of methods (e.g., survey, neuroimaging, experimental) to compare people's affect --- emotions, moods, and other feeling states --- within and across cultures. Our goal is to produce research and theory that broaden our current
understandings of affect and culture in ways that are both
scientifically and clinically useful.
Our projects are funded by or have been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute on Aging, the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, the Stanford Center for Advanced Decision Making in Aging, the Case Western Institute for Unlimited Love, and the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education.
