Research Interests: I am interested in the socio-cultural construction of the self and relationships, and in how those constructions are related to conceptions of interdependence across contexts. I am also interested in the processes of reproduction of social representations of national history and their relationship with attitudes towards public policy, with a particular focus on transitional justice in post-conflict societies.
