I am Geetha Reddy, a social psychologist interested in diversity, multiculturalism and migration.


I have recently completed my PhD in Psychology at the department of Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, at the London School of Economics and Political Science. My thesis is titled "The influence of socio-political context on racial identity: Strategic Identity Construction among Malaysians and Singaporeans".


I studied the social psychology of racial, and ethnic identity constructions, negotiations and intergroup relations in multicultural societies that have race-based social policies. Research for the PhD was carried out in Malaysia, Singapore and the UK.


My other research interests include perspective taking among individuals, the socio-cultural determinants of health related behaviour as well as safety culture within public health systems.
