    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychology

    BioI am currently a researcher at the Psychology Department at Stanford University. I’m broadly interested in the social psychological impact of smart technology. In particular, I explore cultural assumptions underlying conceptions of smart technology in different groups and societies—how do pre-existing cultural worldviews and values afford people to imagine, design, and interact with smart technology in different ways? Whose cultures are represented and promoted by the deployment of smart technology? I believe unpacking these cultural assumptions is critical to reflecting on the purposes of smart technology so as to guide its development to serve a broader range of the population in society.

    I received my Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from Stanford Graduate School of Business, where I was lucky to be advised by Prof. Brian Lowery. After that, I have been working with Prof. Hazel Markus on research related to culture, creativity, and smart technology. My work has been supported by the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI), Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS), and Hasso Plattner Design Thinking Research Program (HPDTRP).

    Prior to Stanford, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in China. I also obtained Master’s degrees in Anthropology and in Human Resources and Industrial Relations respectively.
