I am a social psychologist interested in investigating  how disadvantaged groups navigate their identities through privileged systems. How do they deal with their lower status? How does society perceive them? When do advantaged groups support their action to improve their status? To seek answers for these questions, I use diverse methods often combining correlatinal exploratory studies with follow-up experiments as well as qualitative research to develop an indepth understanding of the psychological phenomenon.
