My research focuses on the cognitive, affective and behavioural effects of benevolent stereotyping and discrimination, and of paternalism in particular, in collaboration with Benoit Dardenne (Affect & Social Cognition pole). During my PhD, I studied the impact of benevolent sexism ideologies on women's decision-making within an economic context, using both the Ultimatum Game and the Dictator Game paradigms. I also examined both explicit and implicit affective reactions of paternalism targets within a work context, as well as the behavioural reactions of young athletes confronted with paternalism. Lastly, I explored various strategies (emotion regulation and mindfulness) to reduce the impacts of benevolent stereotyping.
