My research interests are broadly at the intersection of social psychology and discourse it pertains to some of the pressing concerns of our time. My work examines topics such as identity, prejudice, inter-group conflict, social exclusion / inclusion, and political participation. I examine issues of migration, nationalism, citizenship, and social and protest movements. To date I have extensively examined these issues in diverse settings such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, India, and Palestine/Israel. In my research I prioritize participants' own ways of sense-meaning and negotiating the concerns they face. The aim here is to explicate and examine peoples' own practices to develop knowledge that will not only help us better understand issues at hand, but also to effect change.I have extensively published my work in leading academic journals in social psychology and discourse analysis. Notably, I have edited a special issue on the 2015 'refugee crisis' as relevant in the context of the European Union for the Journal of Community and Applied Social Psychology. I'm have submitted an Edited book proposal on Critical Qualitative Psychology in India' to Routledge. I'm currently in discussions with the Open University Press to develop an edited collection on the Social Psychology of Online Interactions. I routinely present my work at leading international conferences and organize symposia within these. I'm also invited to give talks at universities and events. In this way, I'm active in disseminating and communicating my research. I closely work with civil society organizations in developing and conducting my research. I actively seek funding for my research: I have applied for grants from Irish Research Council. Currently, I'm leading a Europe-wide consortium in applying for a Horizon 2020 grant on Migration discourses.
