I am a cognitively oriented social psychologist interested in people’s behavior in the workplace. I work primarily in three areas: cultural influences on social behavior and action, social psychological factors in conflict resolution, and social judgment and decision making. A central interest is everyday causal attributions, which lies at the core of how people solve problems, manage each other, and learn from experience. I have studied differences between East Asian and Western response tendencies in this domain, and also in the domains of conflict resolution decisions and justice judgments. However, more than documenting patterns of cultural difference, my goal is to advance a constructivist understanding of how cultural traditions influence individual judgments and decisions.
