My research interests are diverse, interdisciplinary, and cross-cultural. My ongoing research projects explore various social and psychological vulnerabilities associated with climate change, religious extremism, migration, and gender identity. I work in the areas of Social, Cultural, Political, Evolutionary, and Climate Psychology using correlational, experimental, qualitative, and triangulation methods. Due to the cross-disciplinary and intersectional nature of my research, I frequently collaborate with evolutionary biologists, human geographers, urban planners, political scientists, and international law scholars. My work has received several prestigious research and community engagement grants from institutes such as Max Planck Institute (Germany), USAID (USA), International Institute of Education (IIE, USA), Higher Education Commission (HEC, Pakistan), and International Development Research Centre (IDRC, Canada).
