Interests: My research is in the areas of narrative, self and well-being. I am particularly interested in the extended self, which is built on personal narratives of past and future experiences. Specifically, my research focuses on the socialization and development of the extended self in the cultural contexts and the implications on social and emotional outcomes. As the extended self is contingent upon language, my research further examines the development of narrative skills in different cultural contexts.

Interests: How much of the cognitive change associated with aging is due to the effects associated with factors from biological (e.g., genetic), neurobiological (e.g., dopaminergic), health (e.g., vascular, obesity), and environment (e.g., lifestyle) domains? I am interested in how these factors independently and interactively affect the trajectories of older adult cognition.

Interests: My research interests centre on the health and well-being of youth in their transition to adulthood. More specifically, social and environmental influences on youth’s psychological functioning, health-related habit formation during the transition period, and youth’s self-perceptions.
