As a personality psychologist and cross-cultural psychologist, I have dedicated my professional career to improving our understanding of mental well-being and the role of culture in shaping it. My research on this topic has been published in more than 140 articles and book chapters based on data from countries on six continents. My extensive network of international colleagues allows me to bring a global perspective to my research and stay at the forefront of developments in my field. In addition, I have a broad range of skills in data analysis and survey design, teach applied statistical analysis, and provide statistical consulting services.
I received my Ph.D. in psychology from the School of Psychology at Victoria University of Wellington in 2013.
