Educational Bio

Xiangjing is a first-year graduate student in the Social Psychology program at Syracuse University. She graduated from East China Normal University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Applied Psychology. During her master’s studies, her research focused on the positive effects of personal characteristics (e.g., self-compassion) on personal well-being. Currently, she is broadly interested in the interpersonal processes in close relationships and the corresponding relational outcomes. Specifically, why do people make a sacrifice for their partner and how does their partner perceive and react to the sacrifice? She likes traveling and watching movies during her spare time.
