About Me

I am currently a doctoral candidate in the Psychology and Social Intervention Program at New York University. I have a B.A. in Psychology from Cornell University and worked for three years at the Harvard Lab for Developmental Studies. I then returned to Dhaka, Bangladesh to begin the development of Kaan Pete Roi, Bangladesh’s first emotional support and suicide prevention helpline.

Broadly, my research examines how people respond to violence, both in their every day lives and in their group’s histories, and how belonging to certain social groups influence those responses.
