Who are you? (brief background/overview about yourself): I am passionate about leveraging behavioral science to promote wellness in diverse communities. I play a lead role in the HopeLab Foundation’s new initiative to promote human resilience and inner values through social-tech innovation. As an active social psychologist and a former professor, I'm fascinated by emotion and context. I used my research to create the cultural curriculum for the Emmy-nominated Nick, Jr. show "Ni hao, Kai-lan." My work has been featured in the New York Times, Time Magazine, and the Seattle Times.
