I am a social psychologist and a senior faculty at the psychology department of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), where I serve as the director of the Social Relations Lab. I completed my B.A. (2012) in psychology and management, followed by an M.A. (2015) and Ph.D. (2020) in social psychology, all at Tel Aviv University. Prior to joining BGU, I held a postdoctoral research fellowship at Princeton University.


Broadly speaking, my interest lies in examining the psychological processes that form and maintain social roles within contemporary society, as well as how they shape interpersonal relationships and group dynamics. My current focus primarily centers on identifying attitudinal and behavioral mechanisms that hinder gender equality, along with the associated personal and professional costs for those who engage in them.
