About Me

I identify as a social psychologist and a gender researcher. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Tel Aviv University and an Azrieli Fellow.

I'm committed to understanding prejudice and
intergroup conflict, with a focus on gender and anti-Gypsyism.

 

I'm deeply interested in researching gender-based violence, especially the social aspects of rape. I want to understand how society sees and reacts to rape: this means looking into how and when people call something rape and how often they blame the victim or let the offender off the hook.

 

I've also looked into how child sexual abuse is perceived within the Catholic Church. On a practical level, I helped set up an Anti-Harassment Committee in four Hungarian schools. There, we created a way for survivors to report incidents and trained teachers on how to handle these situations.

 

Gender stereotypes are another area I'm passionate about. I've studied how people view brilliant women in different settings.

 

In the corporate world, I've done applied research on gender equality and workplace diversity. This work has involved both empirical research and the development of actionable strategies for organisations striving to create more inclusive environments.
