Overview

I am currently a PhD student at the Baruch Ivcher School of Psychology at IDC, Herzliya. I received my BA in psychology and political science from Tel-Aviv University, and my MA in social psychology from Ben-Gurion University.

Research

My main area of interest is the role of intragroup structure and processes (e.g. intragroup inequality) in shaping attitudes toward outgroup members. I am also interested in the moral judgment of individuals and groups, and in gender relations.
