PhD Students


Dan Glasserman

I am a PhD student in the Advanced Graduate Studies Program of the Department of Political Science at the Hebrew University, working with Roni Porat and Noam Gidron. I received a BA in Political Science and Linguistics from Tel Aviv University. My research interests include the psychology of intergroup relations in the context of power asymmetry. Currently, I study how members of advantaged groups respond when confronted with information on inequality and when they support policies and behaviors that promote social equality. Moreover, I am interested in understating the impact of real-world interventions to reduce prejudice and discrimination and improve intergroup relations. 


Abir Gitlin

I am a PhD student at the Department of International Relations at the Hebrew University, supervised by Devorah Manekin and Roni Porat. I hold a BA in International Studies and Psychology from the University of Miami, and an MA in International Relations from the Hebrew University. 

My dissertation examines strategies for promoting a reduction of animal-based food consumption, as part of the effort to address climate change, as well as from a human-animal power relations perspective. My other line of research looks at protracted conflicts, specifically, how national leaders shape peacemaking attitudes, and how critics' identities affect domestic public opinion on human rights. 


Kinneret Endevelt

I am a social psychologist and currently pursuing my PhD under the guidance of Prof. Eran Halperin and Dr. Roni Porat at the Department of Psychology, Hebrew University in Jerusalem. My academic journey includes a BA in Psychology and Political Science from Ben-Gurion University and an MA in Social Psychology from Reichman University. My primary focus lies in developing and empirically evaluating interventions within the field, with the goal of fostering equality and tolerance among diverse social groups. Specifically, my research delves into the impact of institutional-level interventions and their normative influence on both disadvantaged and advantaged group members.
