Doctoral student in Social Psychology

Background

Anam is a graduate student in the Social Psychology program working with Dr. Alex Shaw.  She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2011 with a B.S. and honors in Psychology, and a minor in Cognitive Science.  

Research Interests

Anam is broadly interested in exploring how humans navigate the complexities of intragroup relations, especially those between friends, through a socio-evolutionary-developmental lens.  Specifically, she is interested in understanding how adults and young children interpret and track behaviors such as information disclosure, fairness regulation, and conflict management within the group. She is also interested in exploring how these behaviors interact with other, broader factors, such as scarcity of resources and hierarchy.
