Overview

I am a Ph.D student at the Department of Communication and Journalism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, supervised by Meital Balmas and Eran Halperin. I received my B.A. from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Communication and Journalism and Political Science, and her M.A. in political communication, with a minor in Gender Studies at the Lafer Center for Women and Gender Studies.

I am interested in the way stereotypes may change. Specifically, I am looking into people who highly disconfirm their group stereotype, and the potential that they would encourage stereotype change among observers/outgroup members.
