I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at New York University, NY, USA, where I am affiliated with the Motivation Lab.
I study how people construct beliefs about self, others, groups, and a society when facing uncertainty and disagreement. I particularly focus on the role of minority dissent in these processes by examining how underrepresented minority members respond to uncertainty and disagreement differently from prototypical majority members. I also study how these micro-level psychological processes generate macro-level collective behaviors such as social change, diversity, and polarization in various social network structures. To investigate multilevel causal links and iterations over time, I weave together social psychology and other social science with a complex adaptive systems approach. I use laboratory and field experiments, surveys, network analysis, and agent-based computational modeling.
