Postdoctoral Research Fellow

  • Newton International Fellowship

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, funded by a Newton International Fellowship from the Royal Society. I majored in physics as an undergraduate and got my PhD in Psychology from Peking University, China. During my PhD I studied the cognitive and neural mechanisms of social emotions, such guilt, gratitude, and forgiveness, combining psychology, neuroscience (functional imaging), and moral philosophy. The ultimate goal of my research is to understand the nature of complex social emotions and the role of emotion in human morality and human nature. For my previous publications, please visit my page on Academia (link on the left).

Currently I work in Dr. Molly Crockett's lab on projects about the neural and computational mechanisms of moral decision-making and moral plasticity.
