Summary of research

My research interests focus on individual and collective narcissism, mechanisms of retaliatory behaviors and psychology of intergroup relations. I am trying to understand how beliefs about rewarding function of revenge motivate people to retaliate after feeling oneself harmed. Currently, I am working on a novel scale measuring hedonistic beliefs about revenge. I also investigate how revengefulness shapes intergroup relations. I am an active member of Dr. Agnieszka Golec de Zavala's PrejudiceLab at Goldsmiths, University of London. I was also a guest researcher at Department of Social Psychology of Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
