My research lies in the domain of intergroup relations. I am particularly interested in individuals with a low status group membership (e.g., women, immigrants, or ethnic minorities) who have achieved high status through professional upward mobility (e.g., managers), or other forms of social mobility (e.g., attaining the host nationality). I study the conditions in which minority groups achieve high status (glass cliff phenomenon, managerial gender pay gap, backlash effect), the impact of sexist behavior on women's leadership aspirations, and the identity and attitudinal antecedents and consequences of social mobility (queen bee phenomenon).

I use a triangulation of quantitative research methods including archival studies, questionnaire based experimental and correlational studies.
