My research focuses on how intergroup relations affect daily-life behavior. I am particularly interested in how intergroup processes —such as identification, stereotyping and intergroup emotions— influence conflict perceptions and behavior, both on a societal as well as a dyadic level. Most of my teaching includes these topics, as well as a strong focus on state of the art research methods.
