Research Interests: My research interests lie in psychological resilience and factors related to its development as well as human creativity. Right now I am focus on the relationship between attachment, mentalization and personality development. I am also keen to explore different family dynamics in eastern and western culture.
Brief Biography: I am a clinical psychologist in Taiwan. Before coming to London last year, I worked with children and adolescents with emotional disturbances in medical centers and psychiatric clinics. With psychoanalysis theories, I’ve got better understandings of family dynamics and the human psyche. During my PhD study, I would like to explore the influences of external environment and inherent genetic factors on mentalizing capacity or empathy in adolescents.
Thesis abstract: The research would explore the influences of important factors in the development of mentalizing capacity or empathy in adolescence including interaction quality between children and parents, aggression types and neurobiological correlates.

Research Interests: My research interests are around the Lacanian theory of psychosis, its clinical implications and its possible junctions with the arts and literature in particular. I am interested as well in post-Lacanian French psychoanalysis as well as in the British School of psychoanalysis. I am interested in Post-Structuralist philosophy as well as in some metaphysical authors such as Gerschom Scholem, Franz Rosenzweig and Emil Fackenheim. I am one of the coordinators of a series of conferences entitled "Psychoanalysis and Politics”, which is part of the Nordic Summer University and organise two symposia a year around different topics related to psychoanalysis, psychology, politics, philosophy, sociology, history and aesthetics.
