Today on December 18th, Naqi defended his PhD dissertation. Naqi's research focuses on the extent to which relationships between emotional experiences and aggressive behaviours in adolescents are affected by culture. He found that the traditional classification between individualistic Western countries and collectivistic Eastern countries was not fully supported when cultural values were assessed at individual levels, which may have important implications for future cross-cultural research and interventions.

Congratulations, Dr. Naqi!

The paper is available open access in Social Development. Click here to read it.
