My research interests center around the issues of stereotypes, stigma, and group processes. I currently pursue this interest with two main lines of research. The first examines why stigmatized individuals embrace negative stereotypes regarding their own group. The second is concerned with the development of a new measure of implicit prejudice.

Primary Interests:

  • Group Processes
  • Intergroup Relations
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
  • Social Cognition
