CV Summary: 

I completed PhD from School of Psychology & Neuroscience, University of St Andrews, Scotland, UK under the supervision of Professor Stephen Reicher. I serve on the editorial board of Asian Journal of Social Psychology and Journal of Social & Political Psychology, and as Book Review Editor of Psychological Studies.

My primary research interests include group processes and intergroup relations, particularly intergroup humiliation; prejudice, leadership; political rhetoric and collective mobilisation; social psychology of caste; stigma & wellbeing among marginalised groups. I use multiple quantitative (survey, experiments) and qualitative (thematic analysis, discourse analysis) methods for a deeper examination of issues/problems.
