Chieh Lu (呂婕)

I am interested in people's awareness of how their experiences have shaped who they are. My work on cultural self-awareness has focused on cultural experiences and found well-being and intergroup benefits of the awareness. Apart from investigating the mechanisms and outcomes of cultural self-awareness, I seek to extend the study of self-awareness to other domains, especially emotions, interpersonal relationships, and social movement. More info at my website.
