Research Interests: I am broadly interested in people’s engagement with different knowledge systems from the cultural psychological perspective as well as the effect of social identities on the “ways of knowing.” Additionally, I conduct research on the cultural construction of “peace” by using social representations framework, while exploring the implications of minority membership on perceptions of slow violence. My work also includes how the content and the structure of political-ideology change by cultural ecologies.
