Salma T. Shukri (Ph.D., University of Denver) is an instructor of communication in the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Her areas of interest include intercultural communication, interpersonal communication, and conflict management. Specifically, she explores how communication—specifically, how we communicate about difference—serves as both an instrument and a barrier to inclusion and belonging. Along with having taught several intercultural communication courses at various institutions, Salma has also held several non-academic, professional positions with local and international organizations in the field of conflict mediation and cross-cultural dialogue.
Additionally, Salma engages in methodological research, advancing qualitative research methods through her work. She has published this work in top-tier journals, including the Journal of International and Intercultural Communication and in Text and Performance Quarterly.
