I study “claiming” and “being granted” as routes to social outcomes (e.g., inclusion, status, or power). In my PhD thesis I studied what it takes to attain status in two evolutionary important types of face-to-face hierarchies: dominance-based hierarchies (in which status is claimed for oneself) and prestige-based hierarchies (in which status is granted by others), and the self-perceptions of people who attempt to do so. In later work I investigate people’s reaction to inclusion, victory and power when they result from their own behavior (i.e. when people claim such outcomes for themselves) or from other people’s behavior (i.e. when people are granted such outcomes by others). I am also more broadly interested in social outcomes in groups and organizations.
