I am Geetha, a social psychologist working on understanding what diversity, multiculturalism, and migration mean for the psychology of individuals in contemporary society.
I am especially interested in how social scientists can study and address social issues across disciplinary boundaries. I am currently developing transdisciplinary theory and methods in my position as Assistant Professor, at the University of Groningen, working on the SCOOP consortium goals.
I completed my PhD in Psychology at the department of Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, London School of Economics and Political Science. My thesis is titled "The influence of socio-political context on racial identity: Strategic Identity Construction among Malaysians and Singaporeans".
My other research interests include perspective taking among individuals, the socio-cultural determinants of health related behaviour as well as safety culture within public health systems.
