Bio

I am currently pursuing my Masters degree at the National University of Singapore. At present, I am interested in how conflicting evaluations can influence our attitudes, and how the overall attitudes and its properties may further affect the later behaviors.

Primarily, I focus and work on social- and health-related topics using experimental design, survey design, and social media analytics. I hope to integrate these understandings with knowledge on dyadic and cross-cultural research.

I mainly use SPSS and R in my analyses.
