I have been working for several years in Lautoka Fiji. I work primarily with Indo-Fijian Hindu and Muslim populations looking at the influences of religion on culture and group cognition.  

I am a post doctoral fellow at the University of Texas at Austin. I received my PhD in psychology from the University of British Columbia.

About Me


 My research focuses around the culture and cognitive origins of supernatural and religious beliefs. I am particularly interested in how thinking about minds  and causal reasoning is related to supernatural beliefs.
