I am very interested in group and self (focusing on gender/sex). I have done research on sex ratio, intrasexual competition, appearance anxiety, willingness to compete, interdependent self, and group contact. Now I am doing research surrounding risk taking.
Now I am conducting research surrounding risk taking.
1. Measurement of risk taking based on Adolescent Brain Cognition Development (ABCD) data using the MAIHDA approach, which aims to address research questions: 1) association between multi-dimentional risk taking indices; 2) to what extent those associations differ across sociodemographic groups (gender, age, race, religion, family income, parental education)? 3) To what extent are risk taking reports/tests/behaviors correlated with adolescents’ psychological flourishing/distress (across the full sample and allowing heterogeneity across sociodemographic groups)?
2. The decomposing association between gender non-conformity and risk taking in adolescents. This research aims to reveal the genetic component as well as the non-genetic (environmental) part of both phynotypes and the association between them. We might further identify the causal direction using causal models. Our results are expected to contribute to better understanding of the link between gender nonconformity and risk taking in adolescents.
A third potential strain of my research is focusing on gender identity and equality in education and organization, which is still to be established.
