Profile

Dilshaad's passion for learning and understanding the world has led her from Mauritius to pursue studies and research in a range of disciplines from Fundamental and Environmental Chemistry to Ecological Economics, Political and Social Sciences across the continents. As a pragmatist, she is keen to develop socially-sensitive tools for dealing with contentious sustainability issues.

Dilshaad has recently completed her doctoral studies through an immersive four-year research project in Israel and the West Bank. Here she looked at the socio-cognitive dynamics involved when relationships, intercultural or not and existing in a complex society characterised by protracted socio-political conflict, are under tension. Her focus has been on developing a theoretical framework to analyse interpersonal resilience in order to build more mutually beneficial social relationships.

While undertaking her PhD, Dilshaad worked as a research assistant in the CCRI on EU-funded multi-national team research projects in sustainability and globalisation effects in the food industry. As from September 2018, she is starting a postdoctoral in a UK-India research project on sanitation access funded by ESRC UK.
