Broadly speaking, I am interested in understanding the dynamics between victims and perpetrators at both the individual and the collective level. My theoretical stance is that transgressions threaten victims' and perpetrators' identities. My work therefore tries to identify strategies to restore victims' and perpetrators' positive identities and promote interpersonal and intergroup reconciliation. In addition, I study gender relations with particular interest in the ways through which women unintentionally contribute to the perpetuation of gender inequality.

I am currently a lecturer at Tel-Aviv University, where I graduated in 2008. My dissertation ("A needs-based model of reconciliation: Satisfying the differential emotional needs of victim and perpetrator as a key to promoting reconciliation") received the International Association for Conflict Management (IACM) Best Dissertation Award. I completed my postdoctoral studies as a Fulbright Foundation Exchange Scholar at Yale University and joined the School of Psychological Sciences at TAU in 2011.
