I am a social psychologist studying morality and culture taking an evolutionary perspective. Broadly, I use state-of-the-art natural language processing techniques to complement survey-based and experimental methods.
I am currently interested in questions like how humans perceive moral transgressions in social contexts, how perceived alignment of moral values can fuel prejudicial attitudes in radicalized social networks, and how cultural dimensions (individualism, collectivism, honor) predict moral behaviors.
My past research interests include long-term mating strategies, cultural differences in mate retention behaviors, and the relationship between personality traits and mating outcomes in non-Western cultures.
I am committed to promoting diversity in psychological science (and beyond). Please reach out to me if you want to learn more about what it is like to be a graduate student in psychology or in academia, more broadly. You can email me in English or Farsi.
