I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Delhi since 2016. 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. Currently, I am also serving as a joint program cordinator of MSc Cognitive Science at IIT Delhi.
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.
