Thanakorn (Kim) Angkasirisan


MSc Psychological Research Student

I am interested in emotion science. My research interests revolve around how emotions embodied in the body, influence social cognition and behaviour, and connect to health and well-being, as well as the multimodal markers of emotion.

My current research aims to understand the role of an emotional state (i.e., compassion) on people's endorsement with impartial beneficence and instrumental harm, ultimately to understand why some people weigh the welfare of strangers equally or much more highly than close friends and family.

Previously, I completed an MSc Health Psychology from UCL, a BSc Psychological Science from Chulalongkorn University, and a BA Psychology from the University of Queensland.
