Profile

I study social issues (e.g., economic inequality, recent exclusionism) from the perspective of psychology. I hope to contribute to understanding causes of the problems and identifying clues to solve the problems through research. I am also interested in human prosociality, so I investigate what affects the occurrence probability, degree, and way of prosocial behavior, and what happens to the mind and behavior of the giver, receiver, and observer when a prosocial behavior occurs.
