Katharina (Kate) Block completed her B.A. (hons – 2013), M.A. (2015), and Ph.D. in social psychology (2020) at UBC. She will be joining NYU as a post-doc in 2021. Her research focuses on how our group memberships help determine how we strive to live our lives in subtle and less subtle ways. In this realm, she is currently interested in men’s marked underrepresentation in healthcare, education and childcare. In both children and adults, she investigates factors that stir boys and men away from such fields and towards more male-stereotypical occupation. More of Kate’s research, including pubs and CV here.
