Postdoctoral Research Associate
Annie Jung's research primarily focuses on prosocial behavior. She studies how social factors (e.g., prosocial model, social norms) affect prosocial development and variation across societies. She also studies how cognitive factors (e.g., construal level) affect individual preference to engage in different forms of prosocial behavior. Recently, she has extended her work to health domains, to examine how prosocial motivation impacts various health outcomes, including vaccination. Prior to joining the Social Action Lab, she earned her bachelor's and master's degree in psychology from Yonsei University (South Korea), and her doctoral degree in social and personality psychology from the University of Texas at Austin.
