CV Summary: 

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.

I serve on the editorial boards of the British Journal of Social Psychology, the Asian Journal of Social Psychology and the Journal of Social & Political Psychology. I am currently editing a special issue of Caste/A Global Journal of Social Exclusion (J-Caste; Brandeis University, US) on: 'Caste and Psychology: Bridging the Gap'
