With an academic background in Religion and Psychology, she is primarily interested in how religion and psychology interact in the issues of life and death; and spirituality and mindfulness in self-care and well-being. Her current research focuses on how one’s understandings of life and death are shaped by religious and cultural systems and how such understandings are operated at both individual and societal levels. Her current project, funded by the Quality Education Fund (2010-2012), examines how Service Learning facilitates youth’s positive development and life qualities.
