Overview

I am a PhD student in social psychology at the University of Groningen supervised by Eran Halperin, Tamar Saguy, and Martijn van Zomeren. I received a B.S. in Psychology and a B.A. in Global Politics from Washington and Lee University in 2014, and recently completed my M.A. in Social Psychology at the IDC Herzliya. My research interests include collective action and emotions, and power relations in conflict. In particular, I am interested in different types of collective action (e.g. nonviolent, nonnormative, violent). My research examines psychological factors that promote support for these types of action, but also the effects and effectiveness of these types of action at motivating the high power group to address inequality and pursue conflict resolution.
