My PhD project is titled “Social Inequalities and Sustainable Cooperation to Promote Public Goods”. Under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Balliet and Prof. Dr. Paul A.M. van Lange, I am working on developing the multi-disciplinary open access database and using both experiments and meta-analysis to conduct research on cooperation. This PhD project is financially supported by China Scholarship Council (CSC) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.


Before starting my PhD, I obtained a bachelor’s in Human Resource Management (Capital University of Economics and Business) in 2016 and a research master’s in Applied Psychology (cum laude; Nankai University) in 2018. During these studies, I developed interests in social inequalities and human cooperation. In my master’s thesis, I focused on the relation between social class and cooperation in social dilemmas.
