About Sammyh Khan

I joined the School of Behavioural, Social and Legal Sciences at Örebro University in 2020, and currently serve as Head of Psychology. 

I hold a PhD from the Centre of Applied Cross Cultural Research (CACR) at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand (2011). Before taking up my current position at Örebro University, I worked as a lecturer (2015-2019) and senior lecturer (2019-2020) at the University of Keele, and as a research fellow at the University of Exeter (2012-2014), the University of St Andrews and the University of Dundee (2009-2012).

My research tends to lie in the intersections of cultural, social, political, and health psychology. However, to date my research has had two main areas of focus, involving the application of social-identity and self-categorisation processes to examine: a) group processes and intergroup relations; and b) health behaviours and outcomes.

Methodologically, my expertise lies in survey research and multivariate and latent variable statistics. However, I prefer combining quantitative and qualitative methodologies to ensure triangulation of research findings.

I am a member of the executive committee of the Asian Association of Social Psychology (AASP), and serve as co-editor-in-chief for the British Journal of Social Psychology (BJSP) and senior editorial advisor for the Asian Journal of Social Psychology (AJSP).
