Research interests

My main research interests concern intergroup relations, humanity attributions and prejudice reduction.

I am currently studying how and when intergroup contact reduce prejudice, in particular, the effects of positive and negative intergroup contact with a main focus on the role of individual differences and ideology.

My research topics include also: the effect of ostracism on self-dehumanization, the relation between humanity attribution to ISIS’ members and de-identification with the whole humanity, dehumanization of immigrants and refugees.
