Broadly speaking, I am interested in what motivates advantaged group members to behave anti- and pro-socially to members of other (mostly disadvantaged) groups. With regards to anti-social behaviours, I have researched the links between intergroup conspiracy beliefs (i.e. anti-Islamic conspiracy beliefs) and the justification of violence against disadvantaged groups (i.e. Muslim population in the UK) amongst British citizens during my master's degree.

As for the roots of prosocial behaviours, I am currently seeking answers as to how advantaged group members (i.e. males, native people in Western democracies, Whites in the US) can be motivated to express their solidarity for disadvantaged groups' (i.e. females, immigrants and refugees, Blacks in the US) causes under the supervision of Prof Dr Ernestine H. Gordijn & Dr Katherine E. Stroebe for my doctoral project.
