Short presentation

I am interested in sociopolitical attitudes and ideologies, as well as their antecedents (e.g., personality, social situations) and consequences (e.g., environmental attitudes and behavior, intergroup processes).

My current research focuses on the relation between sociopolitical ideology and climate change denial, with a particular focus on social dominance orientation (i.e., endorsement of group-based social hierarchies) and right-wing populism. 

Keywords: social psychology political psychology personality psychology ideological attitudes intergroup processes sociopolitical ideologies climate change denial social attitudes
