Note: A lot of people are finding my Substack directly (and not through YouTube). Hence I’m now uploading previous podcasts so they’re all eventually on Substack, too. This will hopefully cross-fertilise my audiences and acts as a nice back-up if YouTube decides to take a “controversial” podcast down.
Dr Leor Zmigrod is a Junior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge. Her research combines methods from experimental psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience to investigate the psychology of ideological adherence and group identity formation. In particular, she is interested in investigating cognitive characteristics that might act as vulnerability factors for radicalization and ideologically-motivated behaviour. She completed her PhD at the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge. Leor’s doctoral research, funded by a Gates Cambridge Scholarship, explored the psychological processes underpinning political, religious, and nationalistic beliefs.
