PhD Student, SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw

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 belief about the hedonistic 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 am a recipient of Fulbright Junior Research Award. I was a guest researcher at Department of Social Psychology of Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
