Since 2022, I have been a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Institute of Psychology at Jagiellonian University (Kraków). Prior to this, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Granada (Spain), followed by a Master’s Degree in Psychology of Social Intervention at the same university. I received my PhD in Psychology from the University of Granada in January 2020. Before coming to Kraków, I served as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Psychology at the University of Granada and at the University of Almería (Spain).

Description of research

My research focuses on gender and intergroup relations, with a specific interest in the study of cross-group alliances to promote social change. For my doctoral dissertation, I deepened in the motivational processes that can lead men to confront sexism, the impact that it has on women (depending if men are motivated by egalitarian or paternalistic reasons) and the mechanisms underlying ally perception from disadvantaged group perspective. As part of the INCLUSIVITY project, my current work focuses on the development of experimental manipulations via inclusive social norms that can promote intergroup tolerance in diverse social contexts. Simultaneously, I am conducting research on the context of intraminority solidarity (conflict and cooperation among feminist women and LGBTIQ+ communities), the role of ideologies, emotions and motivations underlying men support for abortion protest, and the effectiveness of interventions to promote gender equality.
