MORGANE MOTLIK

Undergraduate Researcher 2021-2022
NYU Abu Dhabi

Morgane is a senior at NYU Abu Dhabi, double-majoring in Psychology and Philosophy, with an interest in both social and cognitive psychology. Her focus is on how traditional ideas of female or male-dominated fields affect women’s ambition and interest in those fields. She's completing an undergraduate thesis (Capstone Project) at SRBL, investigating how exposure to media portraying stereotypical gender roles may shape women’s interest in and self-perceptions about brilliance-oriented domains. Additionally, the project aims to explore how female job candidates for such domains are evaluated in stereotypical versus non-stereotypical contexts.
