Min Joo Joo
Assistant Professor of Psychology at Duke Kunshan University

Current Research Interests

My research agenda focuses on questioning Western assumptions of the ideal way of being a human, relating to others, and thinking about others, deeply rooted in the existing theories in psychology; I examine how cultural models of self and agency are tightly woven into individuals’ thriving and underlying social and moral cognition. For instance, I have examined the following question in several studies: How does culture influence individuals’ altruistic behaviors in close relationships, such as forgiveness, adjustment, and sacrifice?  In the future, I want to examine cultural variability in how moral cognition is manifested in applied contexts.
