My lifelong career goals are: (1) to generate scientific knowledge of human nature by studying culture and emotion; (2) to fill in the gaps between academic/industrial disciplines and promote collective, cumulative, and open science; and (3) to apply scientific knowledge to solve problems at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.
