Dr. Saleem's research is focused on understanding interpersonal and intergroup conflict. Within the Intergroup bias and conflict domain, Dr. Saleem has done research understanding the person and situational factors that can increase or decrease intergroup bias and conflict. In one line of work, Dr. Saleem has examined the role of attachment security in reducing intergroup bias as assessed by the Implicit Association Task and intergroup competition and aggression as assessed by a modified Prisoner's Dilemma game. In another line of work, Dr. Saleem has examined the effect of media stereotypes within violent contexts on perceptions, attitudes, and affect towards the depicted group.
