Marta Marchlewska, PhD

Institute of Psychology, Polish Academy of Sciences

Head of the Political Cognition Lab, lecturer at the Faculty of Psychology (University of Warsaw), associate of the Political Psychology Lab based at the University of Kent (UK). Specialist in the field of psychometrics and quantitative data analysis. She has acquired broad experience by collaborating with a variety of different academic (Center for Research on Prejudice, University of Warsaw; Centre for Social Cognitive Studies, Jagiellonian University; Political Psychology Lab, University of Kent), as well as corporate institutions (Maison&Partners, ARC).

In her projects she concentrates mainly on the functions that different forms of psychological threat play in the way of perceiving the world of politics. She draws particular attention to personality variables: self-esteem, narcissism, in-group identification methods, and links them to political preferences: support for democracy, populist policy or belief in conspiracy theories relating to politics.
