There are a few things that I would never regret doing in my life: Studied Psychology and Philosophy in Hong Kong as an Undergraduate, worked in the Media, and doing Social Psychology Research. Along this journey, I met my great PhD Supervisors Prof. Greg Maio in Cardiff and Prof. Tony Manstead at Cardiff. Right now, at the Centre for Research on Self and Identity in Southampton, it is a joy to conduct research on nostalgia, self-esteem, and motivation together with an inspirational team.
