I’m interested in interdisciplinary research that encompasses music, education, psychology, and culture. My research centers on the psychological aspects of everyday musical experiences in diverse populations, including young children, teenagers, immigrants, and older adults. My recent work includes a cross-cultural experimental study on music-evoked nostalgia and an Experience Sampling Method study on music listening and mood regulation in young children.
