Razia Sahi

Psychology Doctoral Candidate

University of California Los Angeles

The abilities to perceive, understand, and manage emotions are essential to navigating the social world. But the social world also plays a critical role in shaping how we perceive, understand, and manage our emotions. As a doctoral researcher, I study how social interactions shape human cognitions and emotions with implications for relationship quality and well-being. I aim to promote emotional intelligence in how we understand ourselves, each other, and the world around us.

Outside of research, I like to cook, surf, and watch movies. On an ideal day off, I can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise, spend the day outdoors with friends, and end with a family-style meal.
