Leah Fredman



Supported by a NSF graduate fellowship, Leah is a fourth year doctoral student at The University of Texas at Austin’s social psychology department. Working with Drs. Bill Swann and Bob Josephs, Leah is interested in the interaction of testosterone and identity fusion–a form of visceral group alignment. Prior to obtaining her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at CUNY’s Lehman College in New York City, Leah obtained a degree in photography at Hadassah College, in Jerusalem, Israel.

Leah’s current research interests center on outcomes associated with testosterone and identity fusion, primarily in the face of outgroup threat. She is examining the roles of these variable in parochial behaviors, hostility, and immoral actions.
