PhD HKU, 2006
Associate Professor

I am deeply concerned about human wellbeing and planetary health and always actively thinking about what I can contribute as a psychologist. I study how humans behave in relation to the environment. My research focuses include: (i) to understand how people perceive their relationship with nature and the emotional and behavioral implications of such perceptions; (ii) to explore the cross-national variability of phenomena related to environmental attitudes and pro-environmental behavior; (iii) to examine human responses to the problem of climate change, such as climate change anxiety and support for climate policies.
