Introduction
I am a postdoctoral researcher in Social Psychology. My research interest involves intergroup relations and discrimination, with an emphasis on social norms and support for social change movements in the LGBTIQ+ context. Furthermore, I believe in bridging the gap between academia and the community, and strive towards diffusion of research findings among the general public. To achieve these goals I initiated (together with Tabea Hässler) the Swiss LGBTIQ+ panel.

Full-text available
When opinions in a society change toward more or less tolerance of a group, people do not necessarily see it. Drawing on a quasi-representative survey (Study 1, N = 830) and a natural experiment (Study 2, N = 437), we investigated people’s perceptions of the societal norms toward sexual minorities and the influence of laws on these (mis-)perception...

Although increasing numbers of children have socially transitioned to live in line with their gender identities, little is known about factors associated with their wellbeing. This study examines the associations between parent-reported family, peer, and school support for a youth’s gender identity, as well as an objective measure of state-level su...
Article
Full-text available
In many countries across the world, LGBTIQ+ individuals (i.e., lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, inter-sex, and queer/questioning individuals) have fewer rights than cis-heterosexual people. Although some countries have implemented marriage and adoption by same-sex partners (e.g., Abstract This article presents the results of three studies that examin...

People who are attracted to multiple sexes and/or genders, such as bisexual or pansexual people, report worse mental health than people who are attracted to one sex and/or gender. One contributing factor might be the denial of their sexual orientation (i.e., identity denial). In a sample of bisexual and pansexual people (N = 610), the present prere...
Article
Full-text available
Despite global commitments and efforts, a gender‐based division of paid and unpaid work persists. To identify how psychological factors, national policies, and the broader sociocultural context contribute to this inequality, we assessed parental‐leave intentions in young adults (18–30 years old) planning to have children (N = 13,942; 8,880 identifi...

Social media platforms constitute an indispensable tool for social movements to mobilise public opinion to promote social change. To date, however, little is known about the extent to which activist and political claims formulated on social media echo what the general public thinks about gender equality. This is especially important given that soci...

Article
Herbert Simon’s (1956) concept of satisficing provides an intuitive explanation for the reasons why respondents to surveys sometimes adopt response strategies that can lead to a reduction in data quality. As such, the concept rapidly gained popularity among researchers after it was first introduced to the field of survey methodology by Krosnick and...

Although past research has suggested that pluralistic ignorance—a mismatch between perceptions of others’ opinions and actual personal opinions—does not occur in every circumstance, no studies have directly investigated variations among different attitude objects. Drawing upon theoretical and analytical approaches based on social representations, t...

A key challenge in the design of effective survey questionnaires is to write questions that respondents can understand consistently. Recommendations in the questionnaire design literature propose the use of respondents’ own terminology to facilitate comprehension and the response process.
