Strong, highly competent women and modest men may face social and economic penalties (termed backlash effects), but what motivates prejudice against atypical men and women? For my dissertation entitled "backlash for gender atypicality", I studied why people respond negatively to strong women and modest men. In June 2014, I started working as a postdoctoral fellow at Utrecht University, where I study bedtime procrastination.
