Jeanette van der Lee is a graduate student in social and organizational psychology at Leiden University in The Netherlands. She is very interested in positive psychology, so coming to UC Berkeley for a research internship was a natural choice. Part of the time she works as a research assistant at the GGSC and part of the time she works as a research assistant in Professor Dacher Keltner’s Berkeley Social Interaction Laboratory.
She is interested in many aspects of positive psychology, such as awe, the benefits of being outdoors, and how to create a positive work or educational environments. When she is not working as a research assistant, things that make her happy are reading, hiking the Berkeley Fire Trails, traveling, photography, and spending time with the friends she made at International House Berkeley.
