Meng-Lun "Tonny" Kuo (郭孟倫)

With training in I/O psy and business analytics, I am interested in how discrete emotions shape unique experiences and interpersonal relationships between entities (e.g., leaders and followers, consumers and brands) in the organizational, service and educational contexts. Particularly, I am fascinated by the episdemic and social functions of self-transcendent emotions in knowledge-building processes, status attainment, and leadership emergence. You can find out more about me at my website.

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.
