Fabian is a doctoral student in social psychology, working with Jack Dovidio and Jaime Napier. His primary research focuses around the psychological processes impeding and facilitating collective action for social change, using a variety of cultural and intergroup contexts. For example, one line of work (with low-status groups) investigates when and why positive relations with high-status groups undermine collective action. He pursues these questions at the level of general contact experiences, as well as at the level of specific dyadic interactions. Another line of work (with high-status groups) investigates when and why people become mobilized to take action on behalf of disadvantaged outgroups—focusing on the identity processes that foster a sense of intergroup solidarity. Prior to coming to Yale, Fabian received a M.Sc. from the University of Oxford, and a B.Sc. from the University of Groningen, both in Psychology. He was born and raised in Munich, Germany.
