Winkie Ma


Winkie works with Dr. Richard Robins and Dr. Emorie Beck on studying the longitudinal processes of narcissism and self-esteem. She is largely interested in 1) studying the developmental antecedents of narcissism and self-esteem in adolescence and emerging adulthood; 2) mapping out the longterm consequences of individual differences in changes in narcissism and self-esteem; 3) capturing the dynamic structures of narcissistic traits using idiographic approaches; and 4) understanding these personality dimensions in various sociocultural contexts through integrative data analysis. In her free time she likes rock climbing, backpacking, and creative writing.
