Natalia Van Doren


Natalia’s research examines how, when, and why we regulate our emotions, and how social identity, self-concept, and cultural context influence this process. Natalia is also interested in the social functions of emotions, such as empathy and compassion, and how they shape moral judgment and prosocial behavior, as well as how they vary across different cultures. Natalia obtained her BA in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, where she worked with Bob Levenson, Dacher Keltner, and Oliver John.
