Research Statement

My research focuses on improving understanding of the psychological mechanisms underlying negative reactions towards increasing gender diversity in typically masculine domains such as STEM.

The major aim of the research project is therefore to investigate the role of Intergroup Threats (Realistic & Symbolic) in producing negative reactions towards women and Gender Diversity Initiatives in masculine domains. The research also focuses on the role of gender identity in increasing men's susceptibility to perceiving increasing gender diversity as a threat, and potential methods of reducing these threat perceptions and negative reactions (e.g. common and dual identity interventions).
