Dr. Rotem Kahalon
I am a social psychologist, interested in intergroup relations, the psychology of gender, and applied psychology. My overarching research goal is to explore the social psychological processes involved in creating and maintaining social inequalities and especially gender inequality. My work involves the examination of subtle psychological processes – I examine their effects on women’s and men’s mental health, goals, behaviors, and cognitive performance, and study how these individual-level effects translate to social inequality.
I received my PhD from Tel-Aviv University and am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Social Psychology at Simon Fraser University.
