Other Activities

As a Chinese, I am very interested in how cultural differences influence people's decision processes. I am currently in the process of setting a Chinese subject pool that recruits participants directly from China for online studies.

If you are interested in running studies using my Chinese subject pool or participating in the maintenance of the subject pool, please contact me regarding the Chinese subject pool .
