Vicky D’Anjou-Pomerleau hails from Université de Montréal, Canada, where she obtained a Bachelor in Sociology and Psychology with a mention of excellence. Interested in the issues of gender and political behaviors, she chose to approach those social issues from a psychological standpoint. Vicky began a Master in Social Psychology at Hunter College in the fall of 2008. This year, she is working on her thesis with Professor Virginia Valian and is thrilled to be able to combine her two main interests in her research. Her thesis project investigates people’s perceptions of female and male political candidates’ work experience and personality attributes.
