I. (Islam) Borinca, PhD

Assistant Professor


I study how different groups of people interact with each other, focusing on things like how they help each other, how they feel about each other, and how they behave in different situations. I also look at how emotions, empathy, and prejudice play a role in these interactions. In addition, I explore how people within the same group interact, especially when it comes to things like disagreements or believing in conspiracy theories. Another area of my research is about gender—how society expects men and women to behave and how they actually behave. I also look into violence, including sexual violence and wars, and how it affects people in the long term.
