In a broad sense, my research encompasses the domains of motivation and defensive reactions. One of my current projects centers on delving into the motivational grounds and subsequent manifestations of intellectual humility—a tendency to openly admit the potential for being wrong—particularly in response to encountering setbacks or failures. Another project examines cultural differences in gender expressions and how these variations can lead to divergent reactions concerning gender inequality issues. Ultimately, my goal is to suggest ways in which we can foster motivation to promote diversity, inclusivity, and understanding.
