Cross-cultural psychology, acculturation and adaptation, intercultural relations
At the most general level I am interested in how culture affects human behaviour and experience. I am particularly concerned with acculturation processes and the prediction of psychological and socio-cultural adaptation of persons who make cross-cultural transitions. I also conduct research on cultural identity and inter-group processes, including the mutual perceptions of immigrants and members of a host society.
