I was educated at Korea University, Seoul, Korea, for bachelors degree (psychology) and at the University of Melbourne, Australia, for bachelors in Honours (social psychology) and doctoral degree (social and cultural psychology). My research has embraced intergroup dehumanisation, biased self-perception (self-humanising, self-enhancement), lay people's concepts about what it means to be human across cultures, multiculturalism in Japan, and various social and cultural issues in East Asia with a special focus on heterogeneity within the cultural region. Current research topics include cultural change and psychological well-being in Korea and Japan, acculturation attitudes and strategies in Japan, relational self in Asian groups, group happiness across cultures, and narcissism and religiosity across cultures.
